Norwich North Result

Well I am back from a showery Scarborough where the match ended in a draw and in the end I guess most home fans where glad of the 4 extra points for a draw.

The main political news of the day has been the Conservatives victory in Norwich North. I have to say that I was not at all surprised after my visit there last week. I am not surprised that the Greens recorded what I have read was their highest percentage in a by-election ever. The main problem I think for Labour was the drop in their vote, time is running out before the next General Election and these voters will need to be persuaded to return to the fold if Labour are to avoid defeat. Unlike the result in Crewe the Conservative vote was also down when compared to the last General Election and I suspect that this was largely due to the furore over the revalations about M.P.’s expenses.
