Labour hold Fazakerley in by-election, BNP rejected
Twitter is currently alive with the news of Labour holding the Fazakerley by-election in Liverpool.
There had been genuine fears that the BNP might come second, but alas they did worse than in 2008 which is great news.
The campaign got particularly nasty just hours before the polls closed. A mob of about a dozen BNP supporters rocked up outside former Lord Mayor Steve Rotheram's house.

Clearly both Labour and the Liberal Democrats have worked really hard, so well done.
But it is pleasing to see that the BNP has been so categorically rejected by the good people of Fazakerley.

If you're wondering why there was no Conservative candidate, I'm reliably informed they failed to get their nomination papers in on time.
