Council by-election results

Last night's results:

Hucknall Central Ward, Ashfield DC. Lab gain from Con. Lab 675 (38.4%, +11.1), Con 437 (24.9%, +2.6), LD 357 (20.3%, -12), UKIP 158 (9%, -3.6), BNP 131 (7.5%, +7.5). Swing of 4.3% from Con to Lab since 2009 by-election. This is in Sherwood constituency, a long-shot Tory target (number 141 on their target list). The Labour PPC Emilie Oldknow is also the Party's Regional Director and it looks like her campaigning skills bore dividends here.

Again mixed signals. I feel any gains Labour may have made are going to be crushed by the news of how many jobs are about to be lost in this country before May.

I'm predicting at least 30,000 public sector jobs to go by the end of the year. Also evidence of the private sector worsening as well.

Between 1979 to 1997 the Tories done great damage to our Nation!

But who has been in power sinse 1997 and allowed the Housing market to over-inflate in astronomical measurements causing the highest borrowing ever seen and consider this as economic growth-the 2 illegal long term Wars costing millions of live and trillions of pounds to finance and then the shambles of a trillion and a half pounds of tax payers money to bail out the useless banks?

As the recession is starting to bite and more people lose their jobs its claimed the recession has ended so people can only believe Labour is out of touch?

What chance have Labour got of winning in May?
