Labour's political equivalent of the Battle of the Somme .
All that hope , all that effort , all the hard campaigning .
And they couldn't even take Swindon .
I wish I knew how to do one of those Downfall videos .
PS How much of a part did the crackdown on fraud in certain wards affect the Labour vote ?
Listening to a guy from the electoral reform society this morning, no effect whatever as there is no evidence of any fraud in Swindon. But if you are going to run a trial having a wide selection of areas including areas that have no history of fraud and those that do would seem to be a good way of seeing how effective it was. Lots of winning about not having the right ID or forgetting to bring it and being refused a vote.
