The By Election for Wisbech South was held today and it was interesting because it was the first time the people of Wisbech have got to say how they feel about two years of UKIP County Councillors. Now it’s true that UKIP were utterly destroyed in both the General Election and the local elections a few weeks ago, silencing their many claims of an electoral breakthrough. But This division was won in the last elections by UKIP and can therefore be seen as the first direct chance for local people to show how they feel about two years of UKIP County Councillors.
The Conservative Candidate, Samantha Hoy, won with a massive 64% of the vote, smashing her opponents out of the water even all put together.
Now it’s not for me to express the will of the Town of Wisbech. I am just one person and not a particularly interesting one at that. But if I were them I’d be pretty rattled, both by what happened a few weeks ago, but even more directly by this result.
