Anyone Notice the Bye Election Result?

In the furore over prorogation this seems to have been overlooked.

The Lib Dems held it, but with a massively reduced majority and a 14% swing to the SNP.

Given all the usual platitudes about mid-term protest votes and so on, this is a significant result south of the border as well as north.

This is Scotland's safest seat, and has bee firmly held by the Lib Dems for years.

The Lib Dems are hardly involved in the current shenanigans, except that, like the SNP they are remainders, but the have taken a caning.

If they have caught a cold up there, the big parties are going to get pneumonia down south!

"The Lib Dems are hardly involved in the current shenanigans, ", except for Swinson refusing to allow Corbyn to be a temporary PM and causing mayhem in the oppositions anti Boris plans.

The Tories and Labour BOTH lost their deposits. Has that ever happened before?

Shetland Bye Election

Good job that you're on the ball morddwyd! Didn't know that it had happened with all the south of the border stuff...

Maybe Shetland would still like to consider throwing their hat in with Norway rather than Scottish Indy...?
