You’d think that with a decreased turnout Labour’s majority would decrease in the Heston and Feltham by-election but in the wee hours last night on a 28.8% turnout it turned out that that Labour’s newest MP Seema Malhotra has increased the party’s majority to a thumping 6k+.

Well done Seema. The local girl done good. As for the comment late last night to this blog urging a vote for the BNP:

(i) It was after polls closed

(ii) They were humiliated into losing their deposit,

although they did marginally better than the “Bus Pass Elvis” candidate which finished bottom of the poll. Full results are here. An interview with the honourable lady is here.
