This week’s council by-elections are a personality test

Coffee cup with a 'this glass is half empty' measure on it

Optimists will be celebrating the absence of any contests without a Liberal Democrat candidate.

Pessimists will be lamenting the absence of any Liberal Democrat gains.

And psephologists will be noting the absence of any by-elections at all this week.

These by-election results round-ups cover principal authority by-elections. See my post The danger in celebrating parish and town council wins for your own party for the reasons to avoid straying too often into covering town, parish or community council by-elections.

  1. This is the lowest Liberal Democrat vote since the formation of the party. Well, none has been lower.

    • On the other hand, we can be pleased that the Lib Dems received as many votes as all of the other parties combined!
