Stoke on Trent……..Labour wins after UKIP’s Paul Nuttall disintegrates mid-attack. With his Hillsborough website catastrophe, his strange attempts to state he was a resident when he was so obviously not, his stuttering attacks on an enemy which never really came off.
Copeland.………..Tories grab the prize in the one area where Jeremy Corbyn’s apathy and angst towards the whole nuclear process, both weaponry and power generation was, to many, a truly deciding factor. The Labour push towards NHS cuts and possible closures should have worked; but when the Labour Leader cannot inspire his MPs to even appear to be united, what else was to be expected. Theresa May should grab both her Chancellor and Business Secretary by the balls, chop the whole Business Rates debacle into matchwood, show the business people that they will not be penalised any further, and would therefore wipe the floor with any further insurgencies, within her Party and without,
