Thank you @BritainVotes for brightening my evening.
Yes, that’s right, the Liberal Democrats have WON an election! From the Tories!
Why might this be? Could the LibDems finally be distinguishing themselves from the Tories in the coalition? I certainly hope so. It’s not a shift away from the right, unfortunately, as UKIP have gained, and Labour have not. Could this be a reaction to Cameron and Boris Johnson’s behaviour over the recent riots, punishing them for their holidays, rewarding Clegg for being the first on the scene?
21.6% – A very low turnout, to be fair. Perhaps people are busy on holiday? Perhaps the election has been overshadowed in the media?
More elections – we’ll see how it goes.
