Well Labours majority has been reduced by 40+ seats….They’ve gone to having over 100 more seats than everyone else put together, to just 66.
This hopefully means that Blair will find it harder to push through new laws as he’ll have to solicit support from the conservatives, lib dems and Gordon Brown. This is a good thing.
He’ll have to make more concessions to Gordon Brown, who is much more agreeable than Blair is and Blair will probably be out in a couple of years now…
On the home constituency front surprise surprise it was a Labour hold the same as the last 60ish years. Chesterfield are still holding on as the only Lib Dem seat in the East Midlands though :)
I’m viewing this election as a minor success I guess, here’s to the next one.
