The results of the Dollis Hill by-election on 22nd March 2012 are as follows.
Labour 1168 (45.1%) up from 38.4% in 2010
Lib Dem 1205 (46.5%) up from 40.8% in 2010
Tory 140 (5.4%) down from 16.9% in 2010
Green 79 (3%) down from 3.9% in 2010
Turnout was 29.8%.
As you can see, Labour put up a pretty good fight in our attempt to gain this seat from the Liberal Democrats. We fought a positive campaign and increased our share of the vote. Parvez was an excellent candidate and very personable, hard working and gracious in defeat. The Tory vote collapsed in Dollis Hill Ward and it seems the Lib Dems benefited from this.
Congratulations to Parvez and all the candidates for the hard work they put in and to the newly elected Councillor Alison Hopkins.
