The Conservatives manage a 2:1 victory over ... wait for it ... the BNP!
4,000 votes v 2,000 votes. The fact that the BNP can take 2000 votes in Tony Blair's own constituency says a lot for the feeling of the country as a whole IMO. It also tells us that the tories need to change their leader if they are to stand a hope in hell of beating GB at the national ballot box. Rather than vote tory, 9% of locals would rather vote for racists. Listening to the Con candidate proclaim the result as a 'victory' was farsical. David Cameron cannot win an election. It is time for them to see sense and put a heavyweight like Ken Clarke in the driving seat. It's the only way they can win. To hell with his stance on Europe, they need a winner leading them. Not a loser :-(
