The Conservatives held the Tunbridge Wells parliamentary seat. Nothing newsworthy, however the other parties positions merit consideration. Labour came second and UKIP third. Many had expected the positions to be reversed. The Liberal Democrats finished fourth having previously been second. At least we might be spared from having to feast our eyes on the stupid bar charts which feature in Lib Dem election literature. The bar charts are intended to show that the only way to beat the Conservatives in Tunbridge Wells is to vote Lib Dem.
The Tories gained four seats on the borough council: two from UKIP, one from Labour and one from the only Independent.
