In the London elections on 6 May 2021, Labour achieved an incredible result in Wandsworth and Merton, winning a huge swing to Labour across the two boroughs.
Not only did we triple the majority for our sitting Labour Assembly Member, Leonie Cooper, but we won in new areas. We won a huge majority in the Borough of Wandsworth, despite being behind there in 2016. Wards that the Tories thought were safe voted for Sadiq Khan, Leonie Cooper and Labour in huge numbers.
This gives as a great base to build on for the 2022 Council Elections. Voters across Wandsworth, from all kinds of communities and backgrounds, came together to reject a divisive Tory campaign and say that Labour values are our values.
Thank you to everyone who worked for and supported us in a difficult election! We look forward to seeing you on the road to 2022.
