Damian Green Re-Elected as MP for Ashford

After being wrongly arrested last year Damian Green went on last night to be re-elected as Member of Parliament for Ashford for the second time. The constituency had a 6.3% swing in votes to the Liberal Democrats with their candidate Christ Took who came second with 12,581 votes. The town saw a turn out of  over 55,185 people vote with a majority for Damian Green of 17,297.

Mr Greens win was one of the many that the Conservative part gained last night in the Kent area to gain seats from the Labour party  in Hastings and rye and Thanet south.
