That was the by-election that was

Well it's Friday, so that means the by-election is over and someone has won. Given I am in Greece I have sod all knowledge about who has actually won though. OK, that may be a lie, I may have access to the Internet, but just in case I don't, please read below and choose the relevant analysis and accept the reality that I am, as always, fundamentally right even if I do make lots of typos.

(a) I am a genius. My prediction was spot on. The Labour Party won, but they got really hammered and Ealing Southall is now a marginal seat with a mere 3000 or so majority. Tony Lit did brilliantly, it's a great boon for David Cameron. Ming Campbell on the other hand will not be happy, the knives are no doubt sharpening as we speak. A Nick Clegg leadership might not be good for the Tories.

(b) Oh look, I was totally wrong like most people who try to predict the results of elections. The Labour Party romped it and maintained their majority. Tony Lit did brilliantly, it's a great boom for David Cameron. Ming Campbell on the other hand will not be happy, the knives are no doubt sharpening as we speak. A Nick Clegg leadership might not be good for the Tories.

(c) Oh look, I was totally wrong like most people who try to predict the results of elections. The Labour Party romped it and maintained their majority. The Lib Dems spanked the Tories who remain in third position. Ming's position is safe for now. Questions will now be raised about Tory stagnation. Perhaps Tony Lit's selection will be seen by some as the death bell tolling for Cameron's leadership?

(c) Oh look, I was totally wrong like most people who try to predict the results of elections. The Lib Dems have come from nowhere and done what everyone knows they are good at. Their challenge will be to hold the seat at the General Election, but Ming has solidified his leadership. Labour have been shoved into a second which is a massive blow for Brown. Meanwhile Cameron has been left licking his wounds with many people saying his alleged intervention in Tony Lit's selection may well be the death bell tolling.

(d) Jesus wept. We only bloody won!

(e) You suck, you missed out the actual result scenario. This blog used to be good but you sold out to the man. Call yourself a blogger? You delete my comments. This place used to be cool. I hate you.

(f) If you chose to take (e) then I'm sad to see you go. Here's a whistle and glow stick to help you on your way.

Yours at the Greek estate agents,

Dizzy

Far be it from me to brag that on Wednesday I blogged the Ealing and Southall by-election result.

By coincidence, one of my favourite song is actually called C is the Heavenly Option, by the early 1990s indiepop band, Heavenly.

I blogged it too Jailhouse. 10:30 am Weds as I recall. With the proportions for the leading three ion the correct order at 35:25:19 which when scaled up is pretty close.

I expected the chosen independent to do far, far better and was also a bit soft on UKIP and Respect.

But the boy Dizzy done good.
