Council by-election results

Last night's council by-election results:

Hinckley Castle Ward, Hinckley & Bosworth DC: Lib Dem hold. LD 802 (57.0%, -10%), BNP 264 (18.8%, did not stand in 2007), Con 226 (16.1%, -8.7%), Lab 116 (8.2%, unchanged from 2007). Swing 14.4% LD to BNP. Residual Labour vote held up in a very weak ward for us.

Little Stour and Ashstone Ward, Dover DC. Con hold. Con 1109 (66.2%, -1.7%), LibDem 453 (27.0%, +5.4%), Lab 113 (6.7%, -3.5%). Swing 3.5% Con to LD.

But this ward was actually Labour at one time - the leader of the Labour group on the Borough Council held the ward. It was then a Tory-Labour marginal.

The economy going tits.

You're 18% behind - for some mysterious reason.

And you're getting a hard on about obscure election results.

For fuck's sake. Get on the planet.

Brown has to shafted. Most of the cabinet have to be reprogrammed. The NuLabour project has to be redrafted.

If you don't move to the centre quickly, as against attempting to move there on a Brown sleight-of-hand, then you're sucking dick.

"If you don't move to the centre quickly"

Are you implying that we're left or right of it?

Actually, to be honest I can't tell myself...

Labour are no where, they have become the party of enforcement and zero popularity.
