Total votes cast down by over 1000, Labour votes up by 36 (more than labour received in 2008!).

Luke, diversifying for the moment, take a look at 'One End of Kent' to see what is going on between the local Labour councillors as a prelude to the May local elections. You couldn't invent this kind of insanity which seems to stem from petty local in-house rivalries.
