Sorry, but I can't help but have a little giggle this morning after seeing the results of the Henley by-election last night. Labour was fifth! That's even worse than the fourth position they feared... Actually quite scary that even the BNP beat them. I'm starting to think even Plaid Cymru could have done better than Labour if we'd put up a candidate for Boris Johnson's old seat!
Its quite shocking how quickly Labour's support has disintegrated since Gordon Brown became Prime Minister an exact year ago to today. I doubt there will be many celebrations to mark the occasion at Downing Street. I think Gordon Brown would probably hit anyone who dared present him with a birthday cake today - or at the very least dunk their heads into it! It just proves that you can never get too big for your boots as a political party, or ever dare to take public support for granted. Honestly, after 1997, I thought it would be at least another 18 years before we'd see a Conservative government. It just seemed totally inconceivable that the Tories would be able to pose a serious threat to Labour within a decade. At least one thing has remained constant in British politics in that time. The Lib Dems are as stagnant as ever!
