BNP takes 2nd place in Hinckley by-election

News just in has it that Mike Shore, BNP candidate in the Hinckley by-election, has come from nowhere to take second place with a stunning 18.8% of the poll. This is the first time that the BNP has ever contested an election in this part of Leicestershire and is particularly noteworthy as the ward is considered a Lib-Dem stronghold!

The full results are:

Hinckley & Bosworth District Council, Hinckley Castle Ward, 24th April 2008.

Lib-Dem 802 56.9%
BNP 264 18.8%
Con 226 16.1%
Lab 116 8.2%

Well done to Mike and his team in an amazing first outing!
