  1. Colin Gilbey says:

    I make that the LibDems are still the best performers. They have the same number elected from the same number standing as Labour and with roughly a third of the vote.

  2. I want to know why there was ten contests, and Labour only contested eight of them. This is a constant source of irritation to me, how we cannot manage to find candidates for every contest. Since by-elections are fought in isolation there should be no excuse.
