What do I make of yesterday’s by-elections?

by Stephen Tall on July 20, 2007

Well, you’re spoiled for choice, as you can read one assessment over at Lib Dem Voice, and a second assessment over at The Guardian’s Comment Is Free blog (under a title not of my choosing).

I might also point you to the predictions I made last Wednesday. Looking at what I wrote, I think it’s fair to conclude:

  • Labour will be relieved, but not ecstatic;
  • The Lib Dems will be satisfied, but not ecstatic; and
  • The Tories will be dejected, and with good reason.
