Swindon Labour have been trying to really hard to live up to their new catchphrase of 'double the coverage'. However if you live in Haydon-Wick ward in Swindon, where a by-election is taking place today, you will have noticed the absence of the Labour Party. In all their wisdom, which is not much, Labour have mistakenly campaigned in the wrong ward so they now have 'no coverage'. What plonkers.
The Local Conservative Team working hard in Hayden-Wick ward, unlike Labour.
We won. Bet Labour are kicking themselves for not campaigning in the right ward. Here are the results.
Tories - 1376- 49.6% (-2.1%)
Labour - 887- 32% (-5.5%)
UKIP - 426 15.4% (+10.8%)
Lib Dems - 83 3% (+0.2%)
Very well done to Oliver Donachie who I am sure will work hard.
