The results for both Luton seats and the South Ward council by-election can be found here on the Council’s website.
My reaction to the result in Luton South is naturally one of deep disapointment, but also a genuine confusion at why the Labour vote would have held up so well. My response to the national picture is a general sense of bewilderment and some real heartache over some specific results. Very pleased about Simon Wright in Norwich South and Sarah Teather in Brent Central though.
Will write more after I have found the energy to put my thoughts into something approaching a coherent order.
