Abstract

The distinctive three-marginal nature of Brighton and Hove had made it a focus of Labour's 'ground-war' in the months running up to 7 May 2015. Given the city's status as Britain's leading Green stronghold (until 48 hours after the general election, it boasted the party's only council), Labour always faced a tricky tactical voting mission, as it sought to portray a Green vote as an expensive luxury in Kemptown's tight two-horse race.
