Bury Labour? Hell, Yes!

Bury CLP apparently did not think through how this banner could be taken ...

(Hat tip to Robert Barnes for sharing on Facebook)

And "Bury Labour" is exactly what the voters of Tottington Ward of Bury council did yesterday.

This is a marginal ward in one of the most marginal constituencies in the country - David Nuttall MP held Bury North for the Conservatives by just 378 votes in May this year.

Hence the Conservative gain from Labour in Tottington ward was the best of several excellent results for the Conservatives in local by-elections this week. I've seen it suggested that this must be a record swing to a governing party in a marginal council ward in a marginal constituency at this stage of the electoral cycle ...

I wish I could say "I designed that for them" :-)
