It will be interesting to see what happens to the Tory vote in other elections locally, and especially to Cheryl's when the general election comes (assuming she doesn't stand down before then).

They don't seem to have had a candidate for the town or district elections in the past. At county level they got 3% of the vote in an Anershan by-election and in the last national elections they got 4%.
Assuming you mean 3% of the poll, this leads me to wonder, given the poor quality of their leaflet, how did they manage to come pretty damn close to winning?

I’d imagine UKIP will be encouraged by taking 27% of the vote from nothing, and only 3% behind the winner. Not bad considering they have no access to diverted State funds (Lab), can't sell honours for donations (Lab/LD/Con) and don't except £ms from convicted fraudsters (LD). The three main parties have run-up huge unsustainable debts. Who'd a though they'd do the same to the Country?
