LibDems good third in Norwich North

Chloe Smith will take over from Jo Swinson as youngest MP. The full result is:

Chloe Smith (Conservative): 13591

Chris Ostrowski (Labour): 6243

April Pond (Liberal Democrat): 4803

Glenn Tingle (UK Independence Party): 4068
Rupert Read (Green): 3350
Craig Murray (Put An Honest Man into Parliament): 953
Robert West (British National Party): 941
Bill Holden (Independent): 566
Laud Howling (The Official Monster Raving Loony Party): 144
Anne Fryatt (None of The Above Party): 59
Thomas Burridge (Libertarian Party): 36
Peter Baggs (Independent): 23

Turnout: 45.8%

The Green Party and UKIP also polled well, which must be worrying for the Conservatives. More satisfying was BNP down in seventh place, beaten by Craig Murray, who stands for the antithesis of racism.

Could have been worse - but could/should have been better for us by at least holding our % of the vote.

I can't see Gordon the Gofer going to the Country until the very, very end from this election result, more pitty for the Country and Society as a whole.

Second PM of the Century, and bound to be know as the worst; only goes to show we need fixed term Parliments and STV.
