"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Labour Crash & Burn In Council Bye-Election

The LibDems have scored a resounding victory at Colville, West London as the Labour Party dropped to third place in what was previously one of their strongholds.

Kensington & Chelsea Borough - Colville: Lib Dem 634, C 330, Lab 300, Green 77, Ind 10.

Don't forget to stock up on the popcorn for the Norwich North bye-election results later where the only betting is on how far Labour will fall - 3rd or 4th place?
UPDATE: Apparently Norwich Nth results won't be announced until lunchtime tomorrow so don't eat all the popcorn this evening.


  1. With luck, 4th. The cabinet are in wales today. Can they stay there? They might want to by tomorrow.

  2. Norwich North not out until around midday tomorrow. Will need tons of popcorn! Also offers a chance to tamper with the boxes?
    How much are we paying for the jaunt to Cardiff? An expensive PR photo-shoot?

  3. Yes, maybe we can lose them in the Marches :) Whenever there's a local or euro election they always come out the day before to say they don't expect to win - then when the results are known they say, "Oh, that's good, we thought it would be much worse." You've got to laugh really.

    OR - And there was I thinking I was in for a late night of nail-biting tension waiting for the results - thanks for the warning.
