As a by-election winner myself, it was a huge pleasure to see Labour’s Linday Roy cruise to victory in Glenrothes. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/edinburgh_and_east/7710999.stm. Back in 2004, at the Hodge Hill by-election I managed to turn a 14,000 plus majority into a margin approaching 450 votes. By-elections are tough, especially at this point in the political cycle. To deliver such a crushing defeat to the SNP says something very good about Labour and our campaign team – and something even better about Mr Roy. I look forward to welcoming him to Westminster.
