Conservative Luke Evans12 15,812 38.29 +0.72
UKIP Graham Short13 4,154 10.06 +8.30

Independent Henna Rai 91 0.22 N/A
Majority 2,706 6.55 +3.49
Turnout 41,293 62.96 +2.34

Leave Vote: 43.75%

Sitting MP: Gisela Stuart (Lab)
Prediction: Conservative gain

The Tories have had their eye on this seat ever since 1997 but Gisela Stuart proved very difficult to shift. She’s standing down so I’d say this was a very likely Tory gain.

2. Birmingham Erdington

2010 Result:
Conservative: 11592 (32.6%)
Labour: 14869 (41.8%)
Lib Dem: 5742 (16.2%)
BNP: 1815 (5.1%)
UKIP: 842 (2.4%)
Christian: 217 (0.6%)
Independent: 240 (0.7%)
Others: 229 (0.6%)
MAJORITY: 3277 (9.2%)

2015 Result:
Labour Jack Dromey 15,824 45.6 Increase 3.8

Turnout 34,684 53.3 Decrease 0.2

Leave Vote: 58.48%

Sitting MP: Jack Dromey (Lab)
Prediction: Conservative gain

I think Jack Dromey is in real trouble here. A big leave vote, combined with nearly 7,000 UKIP votes up for grabs and the Tories must be hoping they can pull this one off.

John Hemming is restanding and his result was certainly better than his LibDem colleagues. But given this is a Leave seat, I can’t see him rising from the ashes,
