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.
