A brace of good results in last night’s local by-elections in Horsham and Chippenham. Congratulations to Belinda Walters and Mark Packard. Jonathan Wallace has the full figures.

Er, don’t think we should get too excited about a Town Council gain on an under-20% turnout.

Good result in Horsham though.

I never get excited about council by elections per se, but let’s not forget that Chippenham is one of the Tories’ top target seats and one they must win if they are to get a toehold of power after the next general election. The fact that they flunked it, during their best fortnight in years, ought to be setting off alarm bells.

Tempted to put a comment here so that it’s the first thing journalists and Tories see under the LDV banner headline on this website.

Oops. I’ve just done that. Oh well, apologies for that!
