Early election option improves

The results are in. Gordon Brown and Labour can be relatively content holding on to both seats (even with reduced majorities). Menzies Campbell and Lib Dems (except for those plotting against Campbell) can be content in seeing off the Tories even if an 18 year winning streak is over. The big losers were David Cameron and the Conservatives failing to overhaul the Lib Dems even in Ealing where the Team Cameron plan was put into full operation. Going early must look a bit more tempting this morning?Another electoral trend of note is the BNP gaining 9% in Sedgefield at their first attempt, while FPP hampers their growth in elected representatives, MEP(s) continue to look a possibility.
