The Labour Party defied the odds despite beginning the campaign 24 points behind in the polls,  Labour’s vote share increased  adding more than 3.5 million votes to the 2015 total.

Labour lost five seats to the Conservatives, but won 28 from them, as well as six from the SNP and two from the Lib Dems. Unexpected gains were made in places such as Canterbury and Kensington, and in many cases slender leads were not only defended, but turned into huge majorities –  Ruth Cadbury in Brentford and Isleworth  saw her  majority of 450 in 2015 transformed into a majority of 12,000 on June 8th, as Labour Party members from all over London, including Twickenham campaigned for a Labour Victory.
