Has anyone else noticed that the party bigs up certain by-elections where Griffinite sycophants are standing, yet totally ignore others?
How many people outside of Leicestershire realised that the BNP were contesting a county council by election on the 3rd November, not many I bet. It was not mentioned on any official party site. Cathy Duffy did very well under the current circumstances, but that was no doubt helped as this ward takes in the Borough Council ward of East Goscote where she is a very good councillor.
The BNP result was about 4.5% down on the 2009 result which is nothing to the 10% collapse suffered by the Lib Dems. Labour's vote rose by early 16% while the Conservative winners achieved a slightly higher percentage vote than last time out in this ward.
2009 - Con 52.6%, BNP 19.4%, LD 17.4%, Lab 10.6%
