OPPOSITION parties have seized on the London election results to predict Labour MPs will be booted out at the next parliamentary race.
Tories and Lib Dems vying for Glenda Jackson's seat of Hampstead and Kilburn promise a knife-edge race and the Tories also say they will dislodge Rudi Vis's place at the helm of Finchley and Golders Green.
Conservative council leader for Barnet and parliamentary candidate for Finchley and Golders Green, Mike Freer, says the results give plenty of reason for him to be hopeful.

"Glenda has been a very strong MP for many years," he said. "We are not at all complacent but we have a lot of support in Camden and Brent - they know which side their bread is buttered on and would never vote Tory."
