South Swindon has traditionally been a fight between Conservative and Labour. It is the second most marginal seat in the country held by the Conservatives since 2010.

South Swindon changed hands in 2010 when Labour was kicked out of office by a Conservative Prime Minister. Both parties know that whichever one wins South Swindon is likely to end up running the country.
