Wow that’s even closer than the Maltby result was. To be fair though I don’t think even the local Labour group will mourn this one much, he’s hardly been doing his Labour colleagues any favours recently. Congratulations to Mrs Vines, now the real work starts.
He hasn’t been doing himself any favours either. Good riddance … as the saying goes !
