A minor blemish on Kent's landscape

All in all, the results in Kent were all that could be hoped for - and more besides. A thumping Conservative majority, with the Labour opposition reduced to a rump of two, with both the leader and deputy leader losing their seats. No real change for the Lib Dems either, with one gain taking them to just six seats. What a pity that their gain was in my old area - Folkestone West, and by a painful 11 votes.

The final composition of Kent:
Conservative 74 +17
Lib Dem 7 +1
Labour 2 -18
Swanscombe and Greenhithe Residents Association 1 +1
