Comfortable Labour hold….

Strange headline but an excellent Labour result in Glasgow North East:Labour – 12,231 votes (59.39%)
SNP – 4,120 votes (20%)
Tory – 1,075 votes (5.22%)
BNP – 1,013 votes (4.92%)
Solidarity – 794 votes (3.86%)
Lib Dems – 474 votes (2.30%)
Greens – 332 votes (1.6%)
Jury (Smeaton) 258 votes(1.2%)
SSP – 152 (0.7%)
Mickey HUGHES Ind 54 (0.3%)
SLP 47 (0.2%)
Mev BROWN Ind 32 (0.2%)
TILT 13 (0.1%)

Turnout at 33,2% lowest ever in a Scottish by-election. Apart from SNP disappointment the BNP vote high, Lib Dems apalling and the Smeaton vote derisory. This is Glasgow but are the Tories heading for Government when they can barely hold their deposit in a parliamentary by-election??
