I wouldn't call it a resounding victory for the LibDems, but when the top three candidates were all standing on an anti-Heathrow expansion ticket (and rightly so) the deciding factor was their Brexit stance...or was it?

We all know that Richmond is an affluent area, so would they really put all their faith in an independent candidate over an establishment, party backed candidate?
On the one side it overturned a 23,000 majority which in UK terms is not too shabby. On the other side Richmond has a history of electing LibDem MPs. Labour haven't had a look-in there for decades.
