LibDems Obliterated in Inverclyde By-Election Lose Deposit With Just 2% of the Vote

The SNP failed to pull off another Glasgow style by-election coup, although they did manage to slash Labour’s majority from 14,416 to 5,578. The Tories came in third, however with real story of the night was the LibDems shocking 2%, managing to poll just 627 votes.

The low turnout cannot be blamed given they had 5,007 in May 2010 it was 45%, healthy for a by-election. The Scottish LibDems are smarting this morning and not doing very much to hide their contempt for Clegg. Remember when the LibDems by-election machine was feared across the land? Cowley Street can’t be a fun place to be this morning…
