    Would you count coming first with less than 13% of the available votes as a Victory or a Win?

    With less than 25% of votes cast, in some places, last Thursday, would it be at best a hollow victory?

    Not a victory in any sense of thre word. Just goes to show how little the electorate believe any of the candidates, or trust them and anything they say.

    In terms of the 2 main parties last Thursday was a win for Labour and a loss for the Tories. However it was a bad win for labour and a good loss for the tories. A reversal from the last GE.

    The only bias on show is yours.
    With where we are currently and the recent poor performance of government i would have expected the Tories to do much worse and Labour a lot better.

    Odd, on a local level I'd expected the opposite. Especially in some labour held areas that are now having cutbacks to services increased.
