FINAL RESULTS in HEYWOOD and MIDDLETON; the FARAGE LABOURITE seems ALIVE and WELL!

UKIP nearly pulled it off in Labour stronghold Heywood and Middleton:

Liz McInnes (Lab) 11,633 (40.86%, +0.75%)
John Bickley (UKIP) 11,016 (38.69%, +36.06%)
Iain Gartside (C) 3,496 (12.28%, -14.88%)
Anthony Smith (LD) 1,457 (5.12%, -17.59%)
Abi Jackson (Green) 870 (3.06%)

Lab maj 617 (2.17%)

17.65% swing Lab to UKIP

Electorate 79,170; Turnout 28,472 (35.96%, -21.57%)

From the Guardian live blog.

This is astounding although it is a bit disappointing to come this close and lose.  But it appears, although turnout was admittedly light, that there are a few Farage Labourites in Heywood and Middleton!

Technically this is a record percentage and maybe record votes in a Westminster race at nearly 39% for UKIP but this record will be shattered by the Clacton turnout that is still pending as of 9 pm (2am) tonight!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
