Well, Oxford West and Abingdon‘s a pretty safe Lib Dem seat these days. (I remember when John Patten was the local Tory MP, but those days are long gone.) But Antonia Bance (or Bunce, if you believe the Guardian, which you shouldn’t) was a terrific Labour candidate, polling a thoroughly respectable 8,725 votes, and somehow managing to appear to be in a good mood all the way through. It was a good choice by the constituency party, and a good campaign. Shame about the County Council results, though.
