One One

One win for Labour in holding Stoke One win for the Conservatives in gaining Copeland.

All the political news this morning is dominated by the results of the two by-elections. Good news for the Conservatives and Labour MP’s are already describing the result in Copeland as a disaster for them. It was encouraging that the Conservative share of the vote increased in both seats.

Interesting too that the Liberal democrats the self proclaimed by-election specialists came third in Copeland and fourth in Stoke not reaching ten percent in either seat.
