Kenton By Election

So the Tories got through in the Kenton By election with a 6% lead.  I still think it is impressive that Ellie May Southworth got so close, given that Kenton has never been represented by anyone other than Tory councillors.  It is difficult to compare reasonably to the 2010 result, because of the simultaneous General Election, but in 2006 the Tory with the lowest majority was still 800 votes ahead of Labour.

The worst result was for the Liberal Democrats who found themselves knocked into fourth place by an independent, Robert Dunwell.
