Liz Barrett wins by-electionThis week Scotland brought us the last two council by-elections of 2020, both for Perth and Kinross Council.

Perth City North, Perth and Kinross

Perth City South, Perth and Kinross

Liz Barrett has taken a council seat off the SNP, making this the party’s first council by-election win since Ed Davey was elected party leader.

Many congratulations to her and the team.

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.
