So from that we can see that 29933 votes cast as a 42% turnout means there are 71269 voters in the seat. So these voter acted as follows:

Did not vote 41336 (58%)
Conservative 15529 (22%)
Labour 8589 (12%)
Other parties (8%)

I'm failing to see your point here if you're actually trying to make one.

People who don't vote don't count (if in fact they even exist).

More than five million EU citizens living in the UK have applied for settled status, nearly double the number thought to be residents before the EU referendum, official figures revealed on Thursday.

Underestimation of immigration numbers continues apace.

Plus ca change.

Strange, because listening to some, the UK is a hotbed of foreigner hating, knuckle draggers so why on earth would anyone who isn't white and British want to live here?

Maybe the "lived reality" that Britain is actually a relatively welcoming, diverse, free, democratic, aspirational, stable country actually is true.

You need to read back on posts between Tavy and IndoMike if you can.
More specifically Indo.
He claims that the current Tory electoral popularity is a mirage and bizarrely is counting non voters to prove his point. Strange fella is Indo.🙄

It does beg the question how could we not have any idea of this?

No wonder our public services are on their knees...
