STOP PRESS: Greens finish third in Bensham Manor by election

Labour Party - 1683 Elected
Conservative Party - 617
Green Party - 240
Liberal Democrats - 126
UK Independence Party - 40
Official Monster Raving Loony Party - 15
The People's Choice: Above Party Politics! - 9

Turnout 26%. Greens polled 9%

Comment made to the Croydon Advertiser:

"Greens can now claim with some justification that they are now the third party in Croydon. This is a brilliant result for us because the brand power of the Westminister parties is particularly strong in wards like Bensham Manor. We would like to thank the Bensham Manor residents that put a cross by Green Party. They have voted for a sustainable and ethcial future in Croydon, based on the twin principles of social justice and the environment."

Excellent result, well done guys! Sorry I didn't make it to Croydon to help you out in the end - been 'snowed under' with work here.
