Stroud constituency: Something of a bellwether seat

Stroud count
BBC

The party of government has won here in every election since 1979: it was Tory under Thatcher and Major, Labour under Blair and Brown and went – marginally – blue again under David Cameron.

That said, Labour are stronger here than in much of the West.

Outside Bristol, Stroud district council is the only local authority in the West led by Labour.

Could that be a springboard for a Labour resurgence?
