Well, the Liberal Democrats did not do that well, but the did put us in to third place.

The BNP slow hand clapped Phil Wilson which is the sort of rum behaviour I expect of the Liberal Democrats.

spot on with the Labour share!!

Some mistake surely,about the Tories - They were in second last time and have just heard your man Schapp at ES say the third place party always gets squeezed in by elections

I've been grateful for your sensible and balanced comments tonite. They make a welcome contrast to some of the more hysterical posters on this and other sites.

It isn't in all honesty the Conservative Party's greatest night but as long as it has people like you working for it, it will be alright.

Warm regards
