UK General Election 2010 Results: Conservatives Win Lembit Opik’s Montgomeryshire Seat

Glyn Davies, the Conservative candidate for Montgomeryshire in Wales, has won the ward in the 2010 UK General Election from popular Liberal Democrat Lembit Opik.

The result, which turned around a 7,000 majority from 2005, saw Davies claim a 1,184 majority – a swing of over 13% from Liberal Democrat to Conservative.

Lembit Opik, who once dated a cheeky girl, is no longer an MP. Asked by the BBC’s Jeremy Paxman whether his celebrity had impacted on the result, Mr Opik said such comments were “patronising to the Conservative candidate who beat me fair and square.”
