ELECTION: Evan Harris speaks about defeat
6:21am Friday 7th May 2010 in Oxford West & Abingdon News
LIBERAL Democrat Evan Harris has spoken after losing his Oxford West and Abingdon seat.
Conservative Nicola Blackwood won the seat by 176 votes just after 4am.
Mr Harris, speaking on a televised BBC interview, said: "I lost by 176 votes. It wasn't comprehensive.
"It was a marginal seat. I accept a week ago we certainly were not expecting it to be that marginal."
