84. Maybe. I heard noises before she lost her seat that they might stick with her for the long haul.

She was certainly polarizing.

Her main downfall was strategy, I think, with a high degree of hubris. She came in on the Lib Dem Euro election surge and a by-election win, and took that as a sign she herself was a winner.

And her worst personal strategic failing was being an absentee MP in her own constituency. Amy Callaghan worked really, really hard for that seat. Swinson couldn't even be bothered to turn up for hustings - daft, as she could have made a UK national media splash of that and killed two birds with one stone.
