The seat traditionally, since its 1950 creation was a safe Labour seat (and its predecessor from World War II) until 1981, when its Labour MP, Neville Sandelson, defected to the now Liberal-merged Social Democratic Party.[n 3] Sandelson stood for election for the new party in 1983 which led to a three-way split in the vote, less at the expense of the less affiliated party, which enabled the Conservative Terry Dicks to gain the seat in 1983 and retain it in the next two General Elections, with marginal majorities. In 1997, the seat swung heavily back to the Labour Party with the 17.5% swing to the winning party being almost double that seen nationally (of 10% average swing), and has had safe Labour majorities in the elections since.
