New faces, new hope in a great night

Fareham Lib Dems welcome three new members to our team on the Council – Chrissie Bainbridge and Paul Nother elected in Portchester East, and David Hamilton elected in Fareham East after unseating Tory Tom Davies.

Commiserations to Ashley Brown, pipped by just 21 votes in Portchester West, and Jimmy Roberts, who increased his vote share in Stubbington from last year but fell just 115 votes short.

Independents who intervened in those two seats should ask themselves if they are really serious about trying to defeat the Tories in Fareham.

Congratulations to our Lib Dem neighbours, who took control of Gosport and tightened their grip in Portsmouth, Eastleigh and Winchester.

Lib Dems were the big winners across the country this year with almost 200 seats gained. And our sister party in Northern Ireland, the Alliance, doubled their seats at Stormont and give hope of a route away from sectarian politics. See the full results for Fareham.
