There had never been a Labour Councillor in Highgate but in 2014 Labour came 97 votes short of winning a seat (in 2010, Labour were 1,497 votes short): John and the Labour team secured one of the best results for Labour in Highgate, ever; the Conservatives, who controlled Highgate for 12 years before the Lib Dems, came in third place.
