This time he doesn't have an Independent standing against him. But Kilian's vote could be eroded by UKIP, Green, Labour. Labour will be hoping to turnover Kilian who isn't without controversy.

If Labour does overturn Kilian, this decapitation could cause problems with the outcome of this election.
