@dbkell If Corbyn has agreed not to fight seats where the @LibDems previously came 2nd or ahead of Labour, and they stood down in seats where Labour had a better chance, it’s very possible he would have won many of the following seats;
Aberconwy; Labour lost by 635, the Lib Dem got 941

Bolton West. Labour lost by 936, the Lib Dem got 1,485

Broxtowe (Anna Soubry). Labour lost by 863, the Lib Dem got 2,247

Calder Valley. Labour lost by 609, the Lib Dem got 1,952
Cambourne & Redruth. Labour lost by 1,577. the Lib Dem got 2,979

An alliance of Labour, Lib Dems and the Greens would have seen IDS seat of Chingford and Woodford Green go to Labour; his majority was just 2,438. Lib Dems and Green diverted 3247 votes from Labour.
