Wolverhampton by-election

I don’t normally post by-election results but this one is significant.  Lynda Leach won the Bilston North By-Election last night for Labour on a massive 13.1% swing from the Tories since May 6th. The Lib Dem vote collapsed (their vote was down over 90% since May 6th) and the Conservatives were roundly beaten by more than 800 votes.

The victory gives Labour our 30th seat of 60 on Wolverhampton Council and puts us a whisker away from overall control.

Lab 1292
Tory 460
BNP 131
Lib D 52
UKIP 55
