Landslide victory for ApRhys

Following the victories of Dai Davies and Trish Law in Blaenau Gwent, and the Conservatives just managing to see off the Lib Dems in Bromley & Chislehurst, the prediction competition has yielded a clear winner.

ApRhys (post 22) chalked up a comfortable win in the overall rankings, with his score of 21.7 being well ahead of Archibald Schwarz (post 55) in second place with 27.1, and Yet Another David (post 72) in third with 36.4. David Kendrick (37.5), Icarus (38.7) and’s local election columnist Sean Fear (39.1) made up the rest of the top six.

In the individual seats, Eleanor (post 12) won Blaenau Gwent (Westminster) with a score of 4.8, ahead of Gary Barford on 5.0 and Mark Senior on 5.6. In the Welsh Assembly election, Vino (post 42) had the best prediction with a score of 5.2, followed by ApRhys on 6.2 and Yet Another David with 6.7. Finally, Bromley & Chislehurst was won by Gary (post 56) with a score of just 1.7, with Reading Liberal in second on 5.9, and ApRhys with another “podium finish” in third with 7.5.
