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.
