ELECTION 2024: David Simmonds re-elected as MP for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner

 Published on: 5th July 2024   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

Conservative candidate David Simmonds CBE MP has been re-elected as the Member of Parliament for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner, despite a disastrous election for the party otherwise.

Having first been elected in 2019, the incumbent Parliamentarian claimed victory with a total of 21,366 votes, comfortably beating his closest rival, Labour candidate Tony Gill, who won 13,785 votes.

It was a battle dominated by these two parties, with third place going to Reform UK candidate Ian Price, who got 4,671 votes; fourth place going to Liberal Democrat candidate Jonathan Banks, who got 4,671; and fifth place going to Green Party candidate Jess Lee, who got 2,926.

Posting on X after the vote, Mr Simmonds MP said: “Thanks to all the constituents who voted to re-elect me and as always I will serve all constituents, regardless of who you voted for.”

His re-election came amidst what has been an otherwise catastrophic night for the Tories. The party lost more than 240 seats across the country and multiple big names within the party lost their seats, including Grant Shapps, Penny Mordaunt and Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Elsewhere, the Labour Party stormed to victory with more than 400 seats earned, while the Liberal Democrats and Reform Party also saw surges in seat numbers.

The result means a Labour government, with Keir Starmer taking over from Rishi Sunak as the next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

In Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner, 66.91 per cent of the electorate took part in the vote, with 160 spoilt ballots.
