By-election news

andreas yiasimiOne of the pleasures of editing Lib Dem Voice on a Friday is the opportunity to cheer everyone up with news of by-election victories.

Today we can congratulate Lib Dem Andreas Yiasimi on gaining a council seat in Cromer from the Conservatives. He polled 558 votes, beating the Conservatives into fourth place.  The local newspaper reports that Andreas is a local celebrity chef and owner of a Greek restaurant.

Let’s hope that next Friday brings more heartwarming results.

  • Interesting result!!!

    A simplistic interpretation is that the LDs picked up and added to the Greens, whilst UKIP hammered the Tories into 4th place, on a high turnout (by byelection standards).

    LD Andreas Yiasimi 558 (46.6; +19.7)
    Lab 240 (20.1; -4.3)
    UKIP 218 (18.2; +18.2)
    Con 181 (15.1; -22.3)
    [Green (0.0; -11.3)]
    Majority 318
    Turnout 40.60%
    LD gain from Con
    Percentage change is since May 2011.

    This is a great result and testament to the genuine local popularity of Andreas, the strategic genius of Ed Maxfield and the hard work of Norman Lamb and his enthusiastic local team.

    40% turnout – not bad for a local election.
