Victory in Alveston

Massive congratulations to new Lib Dem councillors Tony Cronin (Stratford on Avon District Council) and Ian Fradgley (Stratford upon Avon Town Council), who took the Alveston seats from the Tories in tonight’s by-election. This puts steadily more pressure on the demoralised Stratford Tories, who suffered the biggest swing against them anywhere in England in the 2008 elections, and saw the second biggest swing on their turf in the County Council elections, when the Liberal Democrats picked up a net of two seats in the district, for a total of five.
