Bursting Boris's Bubble
A stunning victory for Helen Morgan in North Shropshire
Helen Morgan won 17,957 votes, near 6,000 votes ahead of the Conservatives and a mile ahead of Labour. This was a 34% swing from Conservative to Lib Dem. Even greater than the 25% seen last June when the Lib Dems won the Chesham and Amersham byelection. A huge well done to Helen, and to the Lib Dems from across the country (including Colchester) who went to help.
Another hole in that Tory Blue Wall!
Lib Dems - the national choice for those who want more decent, honest, competent politics. We are the local choice also, to run our Council again from May 22, to send a message to Westminster that Colchester demands better.
