SNP WIN BI-ELECTION WITH INCREASED MAJORITY AND 6% SWING FROM LABOUR
The SNP have scorched Labour in the first test after the Glasgow NE bi-election in a bi-election in BO'NESS AND BLACKBURN.
The results of the first preference votes were:
SNP (Ann Ritchie): 1,604 votes - 58% (+10%)
Labour: 823 votes - 30% (-2%)
Tory: 283 votes - 10% (-3%)(mince)
LibDem: 79 votes - 3% (3%) (pish vote)
A 6% swing from Labour to the SNP.
Just shows what happens when there is not a POSTAL BALLOT. This must be sorted out before the GENERAL ELECTION. No wonder Labour don't want to give the responsibility of SCOTTISH ELECTIONS TO THE SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT.
