If you live in Wakefield please vote LABOUR. If you live in Tiverton please VOTE Lib Dem. This is the worst PM and worst government in history and any time any of us have a chance to weaken them and hasten their end we should seize it..
BREAKING: Lib Dems GAIN Tiverton and Honiton Lib Dems: 22537 Conservatives: 16393 Labour: 1562 Majority: 6144 That’s extraordinary. The Conservatives had 60% of the vote at the last election. The Lib Dems have won it. And won it by a big, big margin..
The tactic is clear. Distract and to take our focus away from the big problem Johnson and the @conservatives have this week. The Wakefield and Tiverton by-elections. Let’s see how unpopular he really is and what the people think rather than the crap below..
Not sure I believe this. Labour need to fight Wakefield and Libs Tiverton like their lives depend on it. And as I said on @RestIsPolitics Labour candidate Liz Pole will be thanked by all and sundry if she stays home and quietly loses her deposit!! Every chance to smash these 1/2.
NEW: Updated Tiverton turnout Highest turnout in a by election in this Parliament..
BREAKING: Tories sensationally lose Tiverton and Honiton to the Liberal Democrats and Wakefield to Labour. The crumbling of blue and red wall seats will reopen leadership questions about Boris Johnson..
BREAKING: Liberal Democrats declare victory in Tiverton & Honiton. @cajardineMP: This is looking like a clear win. The people of Tiverton & Honiton have spoken up for the country..
If the @LibDems win the by-election in Tiverton & Honiton, where they trailed by 27,000 votes in the 2019 GE, it will be the biggest swing in UK by-election history. Just take that in. The biggest swing in UK by-election history. Gulp!.
I have never been happier that Labour will lose their deposit in Tiverton and Honiton. That means that Labour voters have done the right thing and voted tactically..
@DanielaNadj As much as I’m hoping @UKLabour get Wakefield ( nailed on), Tiverton and Honiton loss would really be an absolutely huge blow for the Tories. Everything is crossed..
@BritishAlba @BritainElects Even if the Tories win Tiverton and Honiton, they are still losers as the majority of 24000 people will be decimated. Why? One man. Boris Johnson..
@BorisJohnson You’ll need a fridge to hide in by the morning. Looks like you are getting a right kicking in Wakefield and Tiverton..
Both seats were held by the Conservatives before their previous MPs resigned in disgrace, triggering the by-elections.
@CliveWismayer If Tiverton goes that will be a BIG deal. My constituency is not far. I hope it will be the first of a few dominoes in the south..
NEW: #TivertonandHoniton Lib Dems very happy with turnout OUTSIDE Tiverton town. Worried about turnout in Tiverton itself. Area is Leave, and underrepresented w/ degrees holders and students. - Sam Coates, Sky News.
@DPJHodges Hilarious. Just the other day they were briefing that they expect to lose Tiverton but that Wakefield will be close. The week before that they were saying they’ll lose Wakefield but Tiverton will be close..
Tories braced for trouble as votes counted in crunch by-elections - -Boris Johnson insisted he was optimistic and it would be “crazy” for him to quit if the Tories lost both the Wakefield and Tiverton and Honiton seats..
Will there be another Chesham & Amersham moment today? #Tiverton #byelections.
Verification of votes in the Tiverton and Honiton by-election is still under way..
TURNOUT : and 42,707 Tiverton & Honiton By Election #TivertonHoniton - down from the 2019 59,613 turnout - but a strong show for a #byelection2022.
Sounds like Boris and the Tories have been hammered. #TivertonandHoniton #Tiverton.
Well done to Wakefield and Tiverton for sending a message to the tories 👏👏👏👏👏.
People of Tiverton and people of Wakefield. I love you all equally. This is how we end the nightmare. Bravo 🙏🏻👏🏻.
Tiverton and Honiton shows that people all over the country are fed up with the Prime Minister. It’s time for change..
By-election in Tory stronghold ‘neck and neck’, as voters prepare to head to polls.
@DPJHodges Both are expected losses. Especially given the Tiverton by-election reason. Labour came second there in the last two elections. The expectation management victory is theirs for getting people to forget that and expect them to come third now..
#Newsnight with a ridiculous 2 pro tory, one pro-Labour (but will tactical vote) and another ‘country is a mess’ vox pop in Tiverton. Is this what BBC balance is now? We’ll see how pathetic, scared and cowered #bbcnews are when the results come in..
@ImIncorrigible @SkyNews Andrea Jenkins wearing yellow…shouldn’t she be in Tiverton?.
@bboy80s @DCBMEP There is no excuse for losing Tiverton & Honiton. It would be a totally unacceptable loss and a failure of CCHQ, Downing Street and the UK Govt generally None are doing enough or fast enough. Yes Tories will win the seat back at a general, but its still totally unacceptable loss.
