The electoral challenge: How are Labour performing in by-elections …

As it is near Christmas you will forgive me if I don t contribute any carefully thought through prose but instead let some numbers do the talking, and let you draw your own conclusions. A prominent Corbyn supporter challenged me on Twitter last week about why I wasn t doing the weekly update on council by-election results I used to post on my own blog until the General Election. The simple answer is that the excellent @britainelects Twitter feed 1 now publishes them in real time as the results come out on each Thursday night 2 .

By way of a round-up, here is the change in Labour vote share in all the council by-elections where there has been a Labour candidate (and there was a Labour candidate in the previous contest so a comparison can be made) since the leadership election in September, grouped by region so you can see the regional pattern.

Eastern (average Labour vote share -4.1%) Bourn (S Cambridgeshire) +2.9% Chedgrave & Thurton (S Norfolk) -0.8% Dedham & Langham (Colchester) -4.3% Hertford Heath (E Herts) -1.7% Huntingdon East (Huntingdonshire) -2.9% Loddon (Norfolk) -8.4% Rochford (Rochford) -16.0% Shenfield (Brentwood) -0.7% S Smallborough (Norfolk) -5.3% Watton (Norfolk) -5.4% West (Peterborough) -2.1% East Midlands (average -5.6%) Belvoir (S Kesteven) -15.1% Coal Ashton (NE Derbyshire) -6.7% Derwent Valley (Derbyshire) -1.7% Holmewood & Heath (NE Derbyshire) +7.4% Market Logan (Harborough) -5.9% Selston (Ashfield) -4.3% Selston (Nottinghamshire) -13.2% London (average +3.3%) Boleyn (Newham) +7.9% Bryanston & Dorset Square (Westminster) -5.7% Kensal Green (Brent) -1.0% Noel Park (Haringey) +7.5% S Camberwell (Southwark) +9.0% Woodside (Haringey) +1.9% North Howgate (Cumbria) -12.9% North West (average -5.5%) Carnforth & Millhead (Lancaster) -2.8% Clifton (Fylde) -9.6% Congleton E (E Cheshire) +1.4% Euxton N (Chorley) +12.7% Risedale (Barrow in Furness) -24.1% Tottington (Bury) -10.5% Scotland (average -8.8%) Ayr E (S Ayrshire) -7.3% Blantyre (S Lanarkshire) -7.0% Dunfermline N (Fife) -18.7% George Street/Harbour (Aberdeen) -5.4% Glenrothes W & Kinglassie -9.3% Irvine Valley (E Ayrshire) -6.3% Linlithgow (W Lothian) +2.6% Midstocket/Rosemount (Aberdeen) -11.2% Rosyth (Fife) -13.2% Stirling E (Stirling) -11.9% South East (average -2.6%) Ash South & Tongham (Guildford) -5.1% Aylesford Green (Ashford) -32.4% Chandler s Ford (Hampshire) +1.9% Epsom W (Surrey) +2.1% Goldsworth E (Woking) -1.0% Goldsworth W (Woking) +1.3% Grimsbury & Castle (Cherwell) +5.9% Northfield Brook (Oxford) +2.1% Sandford & the Wittenhams (S Oxfordshire) -3.7% Shepperton Town (Spelthorne) -4.8% Sonning Common (S Oxfordshire) +4.7% South West (average no change in Labour vote) Clifton with Maidenway (Torbay) -9.0% Kinson South (Bournemouth) +7.0% Rodwell (Dorset) -7.3% Salisbury St Edmund & Milford (Wiltshire) +5.6% Totnes (South Hams) +3.7% Wales (average +0.1%) Bettws (Newport) +6.8% Dewi (Gwynedd) -0.2% Gogarth (Conwy) +1.4% Kidwelly (Carmarthenshire) -10.6% Ogmore Vale (Bridgend) +3.7% Riverside (Cardiff) -0.8% West Midlands (average -10.6%) Belle Vue (Shropshire) -28.7% Blakebrook & S Habberley -1.7% Meole (Shropshire) -11.0% Stourport-on-Severn (Worcs) -0.8% Yorkshire & Humberside Pontefract N (Wakefield) +0.1% References ^ @britainelects Twitter feed (twitter.com) ^ Thursday night (labourlist.org)

Middleboro Review: CapeCodToday: SHNS:What's ahead in state …

Formal sessions recess for the year on November 18 – See more at: http://www.capecodtoday.com/article/2015/11/07/226937-Whats-ahead-state-government-week#sthash.SxYX8RV5.dpuf 1 Formal sessions recess for the year on Wednesday, Nov.

18, but legislative leaders appear in no rush to deliver major bills to Gov. Charlie Baker’s desk. Unfinished priority bills stay alive through the winter recess and into 2016, an election year when lawmakers undoubtedly will be looking to promote their freshly minted accomplishments.

Both branches plan informal sessions Monday. The House does not plan to hold any formal sessions next week, while the Senate has one set for Tuesday. Veterans Day is Wednesday and the House this week passed a batch of bills aimed at safeguarding veterans grave markers (H 1306) and punishing those who falsely claim to be veterans in order to secure benefits (H 1641).

House members invoked Veterans Day as an apt time to pass the bills, and it’s possible that the bills could emerge in the Senate on Tuesday when Senator-elect Michael Brady is scheduled to be sworn in after this week’s special election results are certified by the Governor’s Council. The list of priority bills seen as possibly reaching Baker by Nov.

18 has been whittled down to solar energy and public records reform bills, but the House has been slow to produce any recommendations in those areas or to take up omnibus opioid legislation. Even if solar and records reform bills advance in the next 12 days, it’s increasingly unlikely that House and Senate leaders would be able to reconcile differences in competing bills before their winter recess.

There’s no real deadline pressure, which is what often drives the Legislature to act, since most legislation carries over into the second year of the session, when formal sessions will resume in January and must be completed by the end of July. The only matters that don’t carry over under joint rule 12B are “any measure making or supplementing an appropriation for a fiscal year submitted to or returned to the General Court by the Governor.” Spending vetoes not overridden by Nov.

18 are effectively sustained, although portions of budget bills returned by the governor with amendments do carry over. The House plans back-to-back formal sessions before the recess, on Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov.

Under the proposed bill, any legislator could request that the office review the costs associated with pending legislation, and the bill could not be reported out of committee until such review is complete.

The office would also produce a report after the legislative session detailing all appropriations made during the session and the fiscal impact of enacted legislation.

Norfolk Constabulary: Holt: Unlicensed Musical Event

6 April 2015 Officers from Norfolk Constabulary successfully and swiftly disrupted a potential unlicensed musical event from escalating into a large gathering on Sunday 5 April 2015. An incident was reported at about 9:30pm where a small group of people had gathered in the pits at The Brecks in Langham with music equipment. Officers quickly arrived and arrested three people for drug and licensing offences.

The music equipment was seized and a dispersal notice for the others present was given. Prompt action was taken to secure the location to prevent further people and vehicles from arriving and the sound equipment was seized by officers as the three arrests were made. The scene was clear by 11:30pm and reassurance patrols maintained throughout the evening.

One woman and two men, all aged between 25 and 30 years old, were arrested on suspicion of possession of illegal drugs with intent to supply and organising an unlicensed musical event.

They remain in police custody at Aylsham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
