Seven entries again this week, all ship-shape & Bristol fashion.
Durham, Dawdon: 4 Labour hold majority from 2% (Yellow Peril) to 10% (Lancastrian & Robert Waller), David Boothroyd, hempie & Mark Senior Seaham Community gain Eastleigh, Hedge End Grange Park: 100% Liberal Democrat hold with majority over Conservative from 14% (Mark Senior) to 30% (Robert Waller) Waltham Forest, William Morris: 100% Labour hold with majority from 52% (Yellow Peril over Green) to 70% (Robert Waller over both Conservative & Green) West Lancashire, Derby: 5 Our West Lancs gain from Conservative with majority ranging from 2% (Yellow Peril over Labour) to 10% (Robert Waller over both Conservative & OWL) whilst David Boothroyd & Lancastrian have Labour gain from Conservative
What the heck has happened to Dawden- they only had two candidates to count, after all, and we've known the overall outcome for hours?
The harbour is still frozen solid, the railway line is impassable following mining subsidence, the roads have major potholes, the pigeons all have bird-flu and the telephone lines are still 5 miles away. Still someone is walking to the offices in Durham with the detailed result but has been waylaid by highwaymen.
PS my wife comes from that part of the Country so I have a special insight!!
I was beginning to develop another theory - they couldn't have discovered that the Labour candidate who was elected in May, disqualified, and now stood again , is still disqualified? That would be too hilarious for words.
Thanks,Hempie -you were very unlucky to lose your lead from last week, especially after doing so well with the OWL this week. Just a bad jump on Dawdon did for you, I think -maybe you thought the voters would penalise the Labour candidate for making them turn out again? If so it was a reasonable assumption but evidently it didn't happen. Of course we were all lucky to not have to compete with Pete... didn't he try to claim that months without him didn't count to the form guide?!
