Lib Dems set to win both New Forest constituencies after by-election bounce


The Liberal Democrats shock triumph in the Chesham and Amersham by-election would see some 154 seats across the country flip to the party after they sent shockwaves through the Tory blue wall.

The Liberal Democrats gained a 25% swing in Chesham and Amersham electing their 12th MP Sarah Green.

New Forest West and New Forest East would be two of 154 constituencies that would turn Liberal Democrat at an election.

The 25% swing from Chesham and Amersham has put blue wall seats like New Forest West and New Forest East "on notice" with New Forest Liberal Democrats being the leading opposition to the Conservatives.

Commenting, Liberal Democrat 2019 candidate for New Forest West, Jack Davies, said:

"Our huge triumph in Chesham and Amersham has shown that the Liberal Democrats are a serious and credible opposition to this Conservative party.

"Their blue wall isn't just on notice; it has been shaken at its foundations by the Liberal Democrats in both the Chesham and Amersham by-election and the last set of local elections.

"Residents do not like being taken for granted and that's exactly what this Conservative party is doing time and time again."
