Well Done Liverpool

On Thursday 8th March, Labour trounced the Liberal Democrats in a by-election in Speke/Garson, gaining the second seat in the ward after winning a seat last May.

It was a real pleasure to be involved in the campaign. We had a good candidate (Colin Strickland, pictured), supported by a good Councillor and party members coming in from all over Liverpool and beyond.

Some of the Liberal Democrat tactics left even me speechless but the local party met them very robustly and the result, a 20% swing and a majority of 760, offer great hope for next May's elections.
