Council by-election results

Last night's council by-election results:

Workington St Johns Ward, Allerdale DC. Lab gain from Con in a split ward. Lab 452 (35.6%, -14.7), Con 394 (31%, -18.7), BNP 257 (20.2%, +20.2), Ind 113 (8.9%, +8.9), Green 55 (4.3%, +4.3). Swing of 2% from Con to Lab since 2007.

Hutton S Ward, Brentwood BC. Con hold. Con 686 (73.4%, -5), LD 199 (21.3%, +6.4), Lab 50 (5.3%, -1.4). Swing of 5.7% from Con to LD since May this year.

The two parties are now so close a change will make very little difference. We now have a anti choice democracy.....maybe this has been the plan.
