This week there were 3 principal council by-elections, a full set of Lib Dem Candidates and votes hare increases all round.
This week there was a bumper crop of principle council by-elections with nine seats being contested by 8 Liberal Democrat candidates. These included two Liberal Democrat defences, although one of these is the only contest without a Liberal Democrats candidate.
After a week off with no by-elections last week there were 7 priniciple council by-elections across England and Scotland yesterday with 5 Lib Dem candidates and 1 defence.
This week’s elections were a real mixed bag for the Lib Dems with their 1st (successful) defence of the cycle and 3 uncontested seats.
