I’d already got a lot out of the Dunfermline by-election — nice people, a stellar candidate, totty, as mentioned previously.
But a win as well? 16% swing against Labour in their heartland? Winning the seat the Chancellor lives in? Wiping the silly grin off the shiny new Tory leader’s face by proving we can thrash them in a by-election when we don’t even have a leader and we’ve spent the campaign suffering erm, unfortunate, publicity?
Plus shedloads of cash on my bet?
