Last night was a great evening for the Conservative Party nationally, as we secured a thumping majority to help end the deadlock in Westminster.
Sadly, Louie was unable to pull off a major upset in Eltham, despite an excellent local campaign that saw him significantly reduce Labour's majority. Eltham will likely be a key marginal at the next election.
Following the result Louie thanked all of his small campaign team, family, friends and everyone that supported him.
