Recapping the first by-election thread?
While the inquest on Crewe and Nantwich continues it is perhaps worth looking back to what people were saying about the by-election on Friday April 18th when news of Gwyneth Dunwoody’s death became known.
The thread is here and to me the most striking feature was the way those of a known Tory allegiance were trying to dampen expectations.
I probably overstated the Lib Dem prospects and one or two of the serious betting contributors were making Labour the favourites to retain the seat.
It’s a good read.
