Analysing the 2019 Election Results

In order to answer the questions I want answered I need the election results in spreadsheet form. I have previously got this from the Electoral Commission; it took ’em 18 days to get it out last time, wonder what the delay is this time. Eventually, I was pointed at the House of Commons Library Page, and have posted the results by constituency .xlsx file to this site (it became available on the 28th Jan). I originally made some notes about retrieving the results from the Democracy Club. Here are my notes. …

However the Democracy Club claims to have them available via a REST or REST like service.

Reality requires a deeper look; it also requires the recognition that some of those seats will have been lost because remain supporting labour voters chose to vote elsewhere. Would the result have been better or worse if we had not promised the second referendum? How many of these seats did we lose by less than the Green/LibDem vote? How many of the seats in the Leave voting majorities that we held, might we have lost if remain supporters had been less committed to us? It could have been worse! For a more detailed insight I need to wait for the Electoral Commission spreadsheet.
