Many people have commented on the absence of Alan Howling Laud Hope at the Tamworth By election yesterday, where he was the candidate for the Official Monster Raving Loony Party.
Alan was taken ill yesterday morning and was taken to hospital. Get well soon Alan.
The Tamworth by election was won by the Labour party who are rightly proud of their 20% swing from Conservative.
However, Howling gained a whopping 155 votes. This is less than the 506 votes gained by Screaming Lord Sutch in 1996 but it’s a great result in an area where we do not have a large campaigning presence. Well done Howling
At the Mid Bedfordshire by election, which Labour also won, our candidate Ann Kelly achieved a massive 249 votes. In 2019 she gained 536 votes so slightly down on last time but a valiant effort. Well done to the Bedfordshire Minx!
