Lib Dem vote up in all four by-elections

Four council by-elections this week, three Labour defences and one Conservative defence – and with a Liberal Democrat candidate in every single one.

The Liberal Democrat vote was up again, with the Greens overtaken again and a large fall in the Ukip vote.

Over in the Conservative seat, the party held it – again with the Lib Dem vote up. Note too the big fall in Ukip’s vote again.

Way back in 2003 this used to be a Liberal Democrat held ward, making the result a classic illustration of how some recovery is happening and there’s an awful lot more still to go.
