Continuing a tradition
The Liberal Democrats have an annual highly entertaining tradition, that around the time of their conference, they lose a by-election near where I live.
Well done to Labour Cllr Richard McLinden and everyone involved, for continuing this tradition and winning Warbreck ward by more than 770 votes on the eve of this year's Lib Dem conference. Back in 2004 the Lib Dems had a majority of 1,600. They won't be looking forward to next year's elections.
