Leave Vote: 75.6%

Sitting MP: Matt Warman (Con)
Prediction: Conservative hold

This is Britain’s most Brexit oriented seat, and it has a Remain supporting Tory MP in Matt Warman. UKIP leader Paul Nuttall is standing here and will have high hopes given a majority of only a tad more than 4,000. However, he’s got his work cut out given that he’s the leader of a political party and won’t be able to spend all his time on local campaigning. A lot will depend on how many locals consider Brexit to be the most important issue they’re voting on. I think Matt Warman will hang on if the Tory campaign remains geared towards giving Theresa May a strong mandate.

Sitting MP: Karl McCartney (Con)
Prediction: Conservative hold

In 2015 I predicted Karl McCartney would lose. He didn’t and if he didn’t lose then, there’s no reason to think he will this time unless there has been a huge demographic change which I am not aware of.
