Lib Dems gain seat in Market Harborough

Congratulations to my old friend Phil Knowles for gaining the Great Bowden and Arden ward of Harborough District Council from the Tories in a by-election yesterday. This was the seat vacated so dramatically by the Tory group leader Alistair Swatridge last October.

The result:

Phil Knowles (Lib Dem) - 968
Barry Champion (Tory) - 598

Mr Champion was also the defeated Tory candidate in the Welland ward by-election last year. Clearly he has no answer to my masterly delivering.

Note there was no Labour candidate in either contest.
