Council By-election

Only one tonight:

Uppingham Ward, Rutland County Council. Con gain from Ind. Con 424 (50.8%, +16.3), Lab 211 (25.3%, +25.3), LD 200 (24%, -7.5). Swing of 4.5% from Con to Lab since 2011. Good result for Labour in a seat where we had not stood since 2003.

It's interesting that Labour got over 25% in a seat where we have not put up a candidate since 2003 and in a part of the country where you would not think there would be that much support.

Just shows the value of putting up a candidate in every seat!
