    The problem in a constituency where Tory,Lib Dem and UKIP candidates stand against a Labour candidate is the anti Labour vote is split.
    In this instance the total number of Tory, Lib Dem and UKIP votes was 24,978 which is 977 more than the 23,821 votes for Barron.
    It is obvious the Rother Valley constituency is now a marginal seat and it is a safe bet 70 year old Sir Kevin Barron will retire either before or at the next GE.

    The only surprise being most voters didn’t want Sir Kevin
