Griffin has been moaning about the higher voter turnout working against him. The BNP's main site is down, having been hijacked by one of his former cohorts who's fallen out badly with him and the BNP, so I can't see how he explains away their failure. I expect the BNP will - after a period of intensive internal feuding - move away from the Parliamentary road and revert to good ol' English fists and boots (not that they've ever stopped any of that).
It would be good if the anti-fascist coalition in Barking kept its momentum going and got rid of Margaret Hodge. The anti-fascist vote there does not equate to an increase in her popularity. Maybe she'll start taking a real interest in the people of Dag & Barking, and not in her own continuing desires for a safe Commons seat.
June, I've had a look at the Scottish system and it certainly is an interesting compromise solution. Was it introduced after a referendum?
