SWINDON - prediction and result Conservative hold

Swindon is very important for Labour with two marginal constituencies and they were disappointed not to win the council in 2012 by one seat when all the seats were up for election after boundary changes. 

The bottom winning councillor in the each ward is up for election and in the split wards a Conservative is defending a majority of 70 in Lydiard and Freshbrook ward and a Labour councillor a majority of 8 in Old Town ward.

Unless there are local factors the national swing back to the Conservatives since 2012 should keep them in control.
