Will Barnsley Vote Labour Yet Again?

Recommended Posts

11,000 majority for this expenses crim at the last election. But the interviews with locals in the streets seemed to express real outrage.

What's the prediction when they go to the poll?

Why should it make any difference? They're voting for a party not an individual.

Yes.

People are tribal - they also have short memories. The disgusted are more likely not to vote at all.

Case in point 'that bigoted' woman from Rochdale. I believe, decided not to vote in 2010 and later turned up at the Labour Party conference.

Either Labour or an independent socialist. It will depend on the candidate, but it won't be the fraudster next time round and that will count in Labour's favour.

They are voting for the party and not the individual, so they probably will vote Labour again.

Agreed, hence Milipede competing with Cameron to condemn Illsley in the strongest terms. I imagine that eligibility for sainthood will be high on the list of essential criteria when the job of Labour candidate is advertised.

But if he's banged up for less than a year and refuses to resign his seat, that might not be for another four years.
