Labour lost that for the Lib Dems, plain as the nose on my face.

More to do with the kippers moving to the Conservatives (and how did the pirate party get 9% previously?)

Six results already in.
Has Tory corruption had an effect at council level?

8 by-elections today (11/12/21)


There are eight by-elections on Armistice Day, 11th November 2021, and this is a very interesting set. We have two seats defended by the Lincolnshire Independents, one defence each for the Conservatives, the Green Party and Plaid Cymru, together with three free-for-alls! With hung councils galore, two councillors having left the country and a wide mix of places and issues to talk about, there really is something for everyone this week. Let’s start this week’s edition of Andrew’s Previews by talking turnout, in the UK’s most millennial ward…

Early warning of 13 by elections for this Thursday 25th November.


There’s one local to me the week after with a good friend standing for the SNP and a neighbour for the Scottish Greens, out of 7 candidates.
