TAMWORTH - prediction and result Conservative hold

Tamworth constituency was won by the Conservative from Labour on one of the bigger swings of 2010. Labour’s progress in the local elections has been very limited and the Conservatives should retain control. 

Only one of the wards that the Conservatives are defending from 2010 can be seen as safe by comparison with the pattern in other local authorities but Labour failed to gain any of them in 2011 and only Wilnecote and Castle ward in 2012. So, although other wards were close in 2012, Labour would have to do better than 2012 so win the council.
