Humiliation for Labour in Henley by-election

We suffered a scathing first-anniversary verdict on last week when Labour not only lost its deposit in
the Henley byelection, winning less than 5% of the vote, but was pushed into fifth place behind the Greens and the British National party.

I said I was “very, very disappointed” by the result, blaming the Liberal Democrats for a “very nasty campaign” in which Labour had expected to reap the whirlwind from the oil price rises.

Some are saying I was the minder for the Labour candidate in the Henley by-election, managing the campaign and help the Labour candidate present himself well.

Abject failure on all counts, quick lets blame oil prices.
