It doesn’t seem like I’ve been running this site for very long (the domain was registered early in 2005) but Battersea now has its third MP in the lifetime of this site. Martin Linton gave way to Jane Ellison in 2010, and now (in 2017) she was replaced by Marsha de Cordova. The election result was as follows:

General Election 2017: Battersea
Party Candidate Votes % ±
Labour Marsha de Cordova 25,292 45.9 Increase9.1
Conservative Jane Ellison 22,876 41.5 Decrease10.8
Liberal Democrat Richard Davis 4,401 8.0 Increase3.6
Independent Chris Coghlan 1,234 2.2 N/A
Green Lois Davis 866 1.6 Decrease1.7
UKIP Eugene Power 357 0.6 Decrease2.5
Socialist (GB) Daniel Lambert 32 0.1 N/A
Majority 2,416 4.4 N/A
Turnout 55,058 71.0 Increase4.0
Labour gain from Conservative Swing Increase10.0

If you look back to the previous entries on this site, you’ll see that they dried up at the end of 2011. To be honest, I rather lost interest. But it seems that our new MP doesn’t have her own web site, so I think it’s important that this site is resurrected in order that constituents have an easy way to see what she is doing for us.

In the sidebar you’ll see a widget that will show any parliamentary appearances that our MP makes, along with another widget that is tracking various news sites for headlines about our MP. I’ll also add her Twitter account. If you can think of any other information that might be interesting, then please leave a comment letting me know.
