Labour Defeats the Monster Raving Loony Party . . .

. . . but hardly anyone else in the Henley by-election. Their well-deserved humiliation is astounding. They didn’t even outpoll the Greens or the BNP. And their vote was far closer to the Official Monster Raving Loony Party candidate Bananaman Owen than to the Conservative or Liberal Democrat Parties.

The numbers:

John Howell (C) 19,796 (57%, +3.5%)
Stephen Kearney (LD) 9,680 (28%, +1.8%)
Mark Stevenson (Green) 1,321 (3.8%, +0.5%)
Timothy Rait (BNP) 1,243 (3.6%)
Richard McKenzie (Lab) 1,066 (3.1%, -11.7%)
Chris Adams (UKIP) 843 (2.4%, -0.1%)
Bananaman Owen (Loony) 242 (0.70%)
Derek Allpass (Eng Dem) 157 (0.45%)
C maj 10,116 (29.1%)


Wow.
