In oldrightie's back yard in Herefordshire, Labour came 5th behind the Greens.
Time for bed!
Staggered into the "new dawn" after an endless nightmare of 12 years of Labour to find my predictions not too bad for an "oldie". The big surprise is the woeful LibDem figure and if you take "others" to include those outside four places, 24.7%. My labour prediction was a bit of intuition, some tongue in cheek and a touch of wishful thinking! At the count last night I chatted to a pleasant labour guy remarking that I remember how we felt back in 97 and 01 and wished him luck. A nice cove with a dreadful "Leader?".
