Feltham & Heston: the by-election where things didn’t happen

The Conservatives neither had a post-summit slump or surge.

Labour had neither such a large nor such a slim margin of victory as to help or hinder Ed Miliband.

UKIP didn’t move up into third.

The Liberal Democrats didn’t lose their deposit or do a Barnsley-style sixth.

And the public? Overwhelmingly they didn’t vote.

In other words, the result neither tells us anything new about the state of politics nor had a moment of drama sufficient to change that state.
