Vauxhall result

It is here.

One curiosity is that the vote of candidates claiming to be socialist hasn't varied much since 2005.

In 2005 we were the only such candidate. We got 240 votes.

In 2010 there was us and Workers Power. We got 143 and they got 109 (a total of 252)

This time there was us and Left Unity. We got 82 and they got 188 (a total of 260).

Of course we don't regard either Workers Power or Left Unity as really standing for socialism but we can't deny that some people regard, and treat, all three of us as part of the "far left".

It also confirms something that we have noticed before that when we (proposing the maximum programme only of socialism) come up against others (claiming to be socialists and proposing vote-catching reforms) clash, about a third of the "far left" vote choose to vote for socialism.
