brilliant night for Southport Lib Dems!

there are seven seats in the Southport parliamentary constituency and for the first time ever Lib Dems took six including two gains:one by Pat Keith and one by Tony Dawson. It was amazing. In this town it was the Tory Vote which was in free fall.

In Birkdale ward the Conservatives came fourth. In Cambridge ward Pat Keith romped home with a massive majority in a seat we failed to win last year. The two Fearns-Ronnie and Maureen-comfortably saw off the Labour Challenge. John Dodd got an amazing 700+ majority in Meols Ward. In Ainsdale Lynne Thompson kept our second place as the Tory vote fell. What a night.

Tomorrow is time enough to analysis the situation but once again Southport has produced its own political micro climate. Two factors helped us. The Pugh effect-our hard working and radical MP who has performed so well in this parliament and secondly years of Tory infighting and squabbling. More to follow

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.
