Lib-Dem Success


The Abingdon district councillors for the next four years are all Liberal Democrats (Lib-Dems).

Abingdon has bucked the trend towards voting Conservative. Why? I haven't got a clue.

Also in terms of proportional representation, the Conservatives had 40% of the vote but that translated into no councillors with our first past the post system.
