The Lib Dem surge continues in Shropshire

Just one by-election last night, and it provided a very encouraging result for the Liberal Democrats. In Meole in Shropshire, Adam Feifer slashed the Conservative majority and overtook Labour to finish a strong second.

Well done to Adam and his team.

  • The Green percentage vote has more than doubled which is unusual recently. Is there a particular reason locally for this. Otherwise a good result.

    I think, like us, they had a strong campaign. Good result in a three-party ward.

    This is another good Result, in line with our Polling which is still holding up at around 18%, 3 Months after The May Elections. Instead of a temporary boost we seem to have made a real shift .
    This Week we have Labour & its Pet “Opinion Formers” to thank for giving us lots of Free Publicity. One of our central weaknesses is that Voters tend to forget us when we aren’t in the News, Labours attacks on us are keeping us in The Headlines, just where we need to be.

    Well done team Meole !

  • I expected the Cons % to hold up and Labours to signicantly fall. Shows what I know!

    A deal with the greens would have meant a Tory defeat.

  • If the Lib Dems had been second last time instead of a poor third they would have had a better chance of winning so the result is quite an achievement.
