The Conservative Party’s Simon Hoare has been re-elected as the MP for North Dorset with a majority of more than 25,000. Mr Hoare’s vote of 36,169 was 8.3% up on the last election in 2015. However, the Labour candidate Pat Osbourne also saw his party’s share of the vote rise, growing 9.7% to 10,392, reflecting a national trend of a modest swing to the party.

The Liberal Democrat Thomas Panton came third with 7,556 votes while John Tutton of the Green Party was fourth with 1,607 votes. UKIP, who picked up more than 9,000 votes in 2015, chose not to field a candidate this time.

In Wiltshire South West the Conservative candidate Dr Andrew Murrison was also re-elected with a vote of 32,841, a majority of more than 18,000 over the Labour candidate Laura Pictor. Again the candidates of both these two main parties increased their share of the vote compared with 2015.

    Simon Hoare failed to answer my e-mail of seven days ago. Myself, along with so many hundreds of potential voters in this area told me, as former Daily Mail photo-journalist who is in contact with a host of pensioner clubs and my own Golf Club members, that unless Mrs May gave full details of her plans for the fuel allowance and other social ideas which would affect the `only just managing brigade` the they would withhold their vote. What they demanded to know was the starting rates of income which would incur penalty’s for help. Would it be say £22,000, £25,000, £30,000? There was no comment from Mrs May. A very costly mistake as she has found out.
