A momentous local election count at Stoneleigh today has left Labour floundering in Third place in the newly formed Warwick & Leamington constituency.
Labours support fell to 7% behind the Liberal Democrats close at the heels of the Conservatives who managed only a 3.6% lead on their Lib-Dem rivals.
I am delighted by the result. People have been telling me on the doorsteps that the state of the economy and the collapse of the government over the expenses scandal have played a major part in today’s result.
Vince Cable’s commentary on the economy and Nick Clegg’s call for a total reform of Westminster has shown that the Liberal Democrats are taking the lead on the serious issues we face in our country.
