General Election 2015: Conservative Karen Bradley holds Staffordshire Moorlands seat


Conservative Karen Bradley held onto her seat for Staffordshire Moorlands.

Ms Bradley won by a majority of 10,174 votes, smashing Labour out of the park.

Labour’s Trudie McGuinness gained 11,596 votes while Ms Bradley pulled in 21,770.

UKIP’s George Langley-Poole almost doubled the votes for his party from 2010 with 6,236 votes.

Liberal Democrat Paul Redfern received 1,759 votes, although the candidate left some time before the results were announced, perhaps echoing the poor night for the party across the country.

And despite only forming the Green Party in the Moorlands four months ago, Brian Smith won 1,226 votes.

Despite the competition, there was a friendly atmosphere at Brough Park Leisure Centre, with the Green and UKIP candidates posing together for photos, with pipes and pizza.


There was a good turnout for the constituency, with 67.66% voting in the Parliamentary elections, with only 126 spoilt ballots.
