  • Lib Dems in third place with 12.7%. Snats should fancy their chances again with 23.4%.

  • How strong are we on the ground there ?

  • Sympathy to the family.

    Sympathy indeed, but now maybe we will find whether the powers that be have planned ahead and got our party organised already in the constituency. If not we will face another by-election disaster.

  • Don’t worry, I am sure the party will tell us all that they only need one small push to win etc etc zzzzz.
