'Ello, 'Ello, 'Ello
The first Police and Crime Commissioner result was from Wiltshire. Although the Conservative won it, the Labour candidate was eight points ahead of the Lib Dem.
I told you so. The West Country, Mid Wales and the Marches, the North of Scotland, the Borders: the old Liberal heartlands are now just there to be taken.
And I love County Durham, where the Conservative Party's schoolboy candidate has come fourth behind UKIP, and would have come fifth if there had been a Lib Dem.
Following the Eastbourne by-election in October 1990, the Conservatives removed a Leader who had won them three General Elections. Can they not now remove a Leader who has never even won them one?
