Admittedly the majority for Labour was a bit down, but that is only to be expected during a Third Term, but for the middle of a Third Term we did well. Parliamentary majority in both seats were respectable and the Conservatives are in third place in both seats.
One can't help but feel a little sorry for David Cameron though, because he put his reputation on the line in Ealing Southall, but it has also shown that the electorate are not buying his PR brand of Conservatism. It's also a ringing endorsement for Gordon Brown. I can't recall Major having this kind of boost after becoming PM, in spite of the 1992 general election!
So it's a sping in the step for Labour today :)
