Well, The Results Are In...

... And Labour secures a historic third term, while also recognising that they did get slapped about and put in check a bit. So overall a pretty perfect result, but it will be interesting to see how quickly they forget. It's also good to see that Tony hasn't used the result to vindicate his decision to go to war.

But what about the costs? My constituency, Ilford North, where I've voted for the first time since moving to the are is now Tory from last term's Labour. Of course, in hindsight, I would have voted Labour instead and perhaps I should have paid attention to how marginal it was last time, but still, giving our seat up in order to send a message seems worth it; but of course we'll see if that's true.
