Swing of 14.8% from Lab to Con since May this year, which is not really surprising given the circumstances that led to the resignation of the incumbent Labour councillor.

"Labour group leader councillor Tim Oliver confirmed the resignation saying: “Councillor Phillips informed me that he faces allegations linked to unsolicited but illicit material received through the internet.”"

Hmmm, child porn is a serious business but I have to admit, Luke ... that case you highlighted has got me thinking.

Hey Luke, if I sent you a couple of unsolicited (albeit sepia) photographs of me, laying naked on my tummy on a sheepskin rug (aged approximately 3 months old) is there any chance you might resign too?
