That's doubtful. Almost invariably the winner in a by-election loses the seat in the next general election.

Mind you, it's great to see the Labour party get a kicking in a place they have seen as a sure thing for the past 60 years.

Long may it continue.........

EDIT] The British "Labour" party would be seen as Democrats in the U.S.. I won't say what we think of them in Scotland.................

I think the juries out on that one. I know many die hard labour supporters that can't talk about new labour without using bad language-for the first time they are thinking of voting elsewhere whether SNP or just not bothering as a waste of time. A lot will depend I think on what the SNP do over the next couple of years.

It's not about Gordon Brown either IMO but more a reaction against the whole new labour/closet tory/iraq war/ smarmy self seeking lying two faced hypocritical bastards that is new labour.
