Conservative and Labour votes down, Lib Dem vote up in both by-elections this week

Only two by-elections this week, but one is a Parliamentary one: Newport West in Wales. The other is a Conservative defence on Norfolk County Council.

Wroxham, Norfolk

Stephen Heard stood for the Lib Dems, having finished second for the party last time in this ward – and second also the time before, though that time as an independent.

Ryan Jones stood for the Liberal Democrats in a contest that also saw an outing for one of those new pro-Europe-but-not-quite-able-to-like-the-Lib-Dems-parties, Renew, as well as the for the SDP, which is strongly Eurosceptic in its current form, unlike the party’s founders in the 1980s.
