    The figures shown for Heath at Bexley in 1966 are wrong! His majority in the 1966 election was halved to circa 2300 compared with circa 4500 in 1964. There was a swing to Labour there of over 2%.

    Wasn't that rather famously due to the Communist candidate standing down?

    There was a fourth candidate in 1964 but he was (a) not a Communist (or at least not officially) and (b) only polled 2.3% of the vote, hardly explaining a five-point rise for Labour in 1966. However, Heath's vote rose as well - it was the Liberal vote that was seriously squeezed.
