Bookies pay out on Tory Crewe victory: who will come second?
The polls haven't even opened yet for the Crewe & Nantwich by-election, but Paddy Power is one bookmaker that has already started paying out to those punters who backed the Tories to grab the seat.

The question now being asked is who will take the second place slot? The assumption has always been that it would be Nu-Labour, but the money seems to be heading in the direction of the Liberal-Democrats.

Remember that Crewe is a working class railway town that fought the Tory privatisation of the railways tooth and claw. In 1997 Nu-Labour came along and did sweet fuck all about that privatisation.

Crewe isn't going to vote for scum like that, so let's hope that Nu-Labour does finish well down the pack. The new Tory majority will come from the leafy suburb that is Nantwich.

To any Nu-Labourite who reads these words, I hope that he remembers that during the Thatcher years Crewe was a sea of red at election times, with almost every house sporting its Labour poster. This defeat is part of the price that Nu-Labour must pay for the betrayal of so many hopes, and so many desires for revenge.

Good grief!! Are Labour finally getting their comeuppance?

I'm on the edge of my seat.

Bring on the General Election - every blue haired granny to every blue haired spikey gelled punk will vote out Labour.

Britain - Blesses the Labour party with their just desserts!!

Say what you like about old Wislon and those who followed him. At least they kept the bulk of their working class voters onside.

Nu-Labour treats them with contempt and still expects them to turn out to vote.

It is hard to figure out the mindset that was at work.
