The Guardian: "London mayoral election 2008: how the city voted"

Link to The Guardian

"Who voted for Boris in 2008? Where was Labour's vote strongest? This map from Factmint shows how votes were distributed across the wards that make up the city. The detail means that patterns of voting emerge: from the BNP votes in the Essex boroughs, through to the distribution of Green party votes in 2008. What does it tell us about how London will vote in 2012?"

The Independent: 'East Finchley by-election boost for Labour' 

"Labour's London elections campaign has received a much-needed council by-election boost in a key marginal assembly constituency.

"The result, in a rare Wednesday contest, at East Finchley, Barnet Borough, showed a net swing of more than 16% to the party compared with the 2010 main polls on the same day as the General Election.

"If repeated on May 3, this would be more than enough for it to capture Barnet and Camden, Tories' most marginal London Assembly constituency [from Brian Coleman]."
