No, not the classic mid-term result in Glasgow East, but (for me) the much more interesting result from the Simpasture ward by-election in Newton Aycliffe.
As I blogged earlier, I spent a little time in the ward working for our excellent candidate Malcolm Iveson). The BNP threw the kitchen sink at the seat, including a visit by their leader Nick Griffin.
Canvassing there on Saturday was interesting - not least because a car-full of BNP goons accelerated their vehicle at me as I was crossing a road - about par for the course for their mentality, I would have thought.
Still, the result came through last night, and it was a clear win for Labour by over 100 votes, I understand.
So the BNP have failed to pull the wool over the eyes of the voting public again, and the North East remains proudly a fascist-free zone. Long may that continue!
