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
Carole Ann Vincent 176
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.
