Two Lib Dem by-election GAINS

I’m sure we’ll have more details in ALDC’s by-election report later, but the news of two more by-election gains overnight is lovely to wake up to.

First, in Cornwall, we took a seat from the Tories which is always a pleasure.

And then, in St Neots in Cambridgeshire, we took a seat from the St Neots Independents.

Thanks to all the Liberal Democrat candidates who stood yesterday and their teams for all the hard work they have put in and for keeping the Lib Dem flag flying. It is so important that people have the chance to vote for us in every election.

  • Two excellent results. My only concern,especially with my area of Cornwall is the failure to squeeze down the Labour and Green vote despite being in a clear second place.

  • A small snark, why does Mark Pack produce a a fuller report ( 3 Wards & percentages) 10 hours earlier, ALDC don’t seem very good at this.

  • Tim Rogers, Labour wasn’t squeezed because they put some effort into this by-election, check the St Ives Labour Facebook site, they expected they would do much better here and instead lost third place.
    All the more to squeeze in 2025!

    Mark that does mean housing that is accessible too? The real shortage and long waits for housing is shameful.
    One colleague had the DNR question. Unless, anyone asks, for that to happen it’s offensive to those who want to live. This was asked of a solicitor, with disabilities.
    The spending on Children’s Services and Adult Services should be increased.
    Having a child who is Autistic is a learning experience. Yesterday, was a very little food day. Autistic children can carry on if not carefully handled to have eating disorders in later life.
    When I have supported the need for change on International Law, as this also produced a very sad long term issue of self harming and low confidence.
    At the very start of my illness I cam close to losing my life, it was at that time, no matter what I wanted to stay. I went totally blind very upset. I had a very understanding GP and much support.
