Leyton by-election result in full

Great news - Winnie Smith won the Leyton by-election yesterday, with a massive majority. So, although the leaflets I delivered early yesterday morning can't have swung it, it's nice to be on the winning side.

The result was:

Winnie Smith, Lib Dem 1360
Labour 695
Carole Ann Vincent 176
Conservative 108
Green 90

Carole Ann Vincent, formerly of Big Brother fame, was standing either for Respect or with their support - from the leaflet I saw yesterday, it wasn't clear which.

So a gain from Labour and the ward has three Lib Dem councillors again. Well done to everyone and special congratulations to Winnie.

Talking of by-elections, when is Cllr. Hoban going to hand in his notice?
