Liberal Democrats Gain Brecon But The Boris Bounce Should Worry Them

The Brecon and Radnorshire by-election has not proved to be as damaging to the Conservatives as once thought. When the constituents called for the by-election, the Tories were in disarray and subsequently reselected Chris Davies, a man guilty of expenses fraud, probably because they felt they had no hope of winning it.

If they could not win a seat they held from 1997 to 2015, against a contentious candidate, with the Brexit vote split, and their Remain vote unified, then they would be very disappointed indeed.
