Unfortunately I was unsuccessful at the by election. The results were
Labour - 1165
Conservative - 652
Independent Conservative - 393
UKIP - 189.
Torys have now lost the argument of a split vote as even if you add mine and the Tories vote Labour won quite easily. I guess this was a vote against all the government cuts.
Thanks for all those that voted and supported me. Also a big thanks to all the helpers too.
