Davis Decapitates Local LibDems
Hot news from Haltemprice & Howden last night was a local government b y election victory for David Davis's local Conservatives. In the Howden ward they overturned a three figure LibDem majority and took the seat by 20 votes. The retiring councillor was Jon Neal, the LibDem Parliamentary candidate who had failed to unseat DD in May. The yellow peril had put up his likely successor to gain a platform on the local council. Don't think that'll be happening now.
