People have such short memories when voting its a good job the Tory lead points have come down as the bloody Tories were so arrogant they were behaving as if they were in government now!

The Tories started this mess of the economy and Labour failed to fix it!

Can't read too much into it. Labour candidate - paper only (100 miles away at UNi.) and main boozer in small market town is Con Club.

Labour did significantly better in the TC election for the same ward, backing up the above comment.
