London elects has released ward by ward data on the 2016 London Mayoral election results. The results for Brent show that our London Assembly Member Navin Shah and Mayoral Candidate Sadiq Khan polled more that all of the other Parties’ candidates combined with Sadiq Khan winning 51% of the vote, and Navin Shah winning 52% of the entire vote.
Indeed in the Assembly Member breakdown, Navin polled nearly twice as many votes (46912 -52% to 23530 -26%) than Tory candidate Joel Davidson in Brent.
The ward by ward breakdown shows that Labour’s candidate Navin Shah received nearly 400 more votes than Joel Davidson in Brondesbury Park ward in Brent, where the Tory Assembly candidate is a ward Councillor.
The result means that Brondesbury Park is now a winnable ward for Labour at the next local election in 2018.

Cllr Janice Long now represents Dudden Hill ward alongside myself and Cllr Aslam Choudry.

In total across Brent, Labour now has 56 Councillors, Conservative 6 Councillors and Lib Dems 1. The Conservatives have replaced the Liberal Democrats as the main opposition party in Brent.

Specific data released on the London Mayoral 2012 elections has revealed that former Brent East MP Ken Livingstone polled more than all the other candidates put together. Ken Livingstone won 54% of first preference votes, winning 22% more votes in Brent than the eventual winner of the overall election Boris Johnson who won 32% of the vote in Brent.
The vote spells bad news for the Liberals who’s candidate Brian Paddick only polled 5% in Brent.
There was more encouraging signs for Labour as Brent and Harrow London Assembly Member Navin Shah was the highest polling candidate in every single Ward in Brent. There is a huge drop in Lib Dem in Brnet with them coming an embarrassing third and even fourth in some wards where they have three Councillors!
I’ll blog further on this later.
