EACH of Britain’s four main political parties are facing significant leadership quandaries this weekend following an extraordinary set of by-election results that will form the backdrop and context to next year’s general election.

  1. I’d like to know what Micheal Dugher has been drinking. In 2010 Jim Dobbin had a majority of almost 6000. In this by election that has been slashed to just over 600. On what planet can that be classed as a success? Meanwhile UKIP’s vote has gone from just over 1200 to over 11000, and that was with less people voting in this by election. Yes, labour held the seat, but only just. Hardly an endorsement for Labour if almost a third of their voters have abandoned them, is it?
