By-elections

While we wait for the Oldham East & Saddleworth result, there are two council by-election results, including a dramatic Labour gain from 5th place in Cornwall, giving us our only councillor in the County:

Camborne North Division, Cornwall CC. Lab gain from Con. Lab 239 (33.1%, +22.4), Con 203 (28.1%, -8.8), LD 156 (21.6%, +2.2), Lib 61 (8.4%, +6.2), MK 32 (4.4%, -10.4), Green 31 (4.3%, +4.3). Swing of 15.6% from Con to Lab since 2009.

Humbleyard Division, Norfolk CC. Con hold. Con 1015 (46.4%, -5.5), LD 438 (20%, -4.6), Lab 424 (19.4%, +11.4), Green 176 (8.1%, -7.4), UKIP 133 (6.1%, +6.1). Swing of 0.5% from Con to LD since 2009.

The superb result in Cornwall could be just as significant in its own way ;-)
