Yay

Lye Valley ward in Oxford was one of the most marginal in the city, with just 21 votes between Labour and the Lib Dems.

I say 'was', because there was a by-election on Thursday, and the result is:

Bob Timbs (Labour) 784
Nathan Pyle (Lib Dem) 487
Judith Harley (Tory) 150
Larry Sanders (Green) 64

Swing from Lib Dem to Labour 9%.

Bob is going to be a great councillor, and the only way I could be more happy is if my feet didn't hurt so much.

That's an incredible result, congrats! Particularly given the national scene. How did you do it?
