Labour celebrating a commanding byelection victory, retaining the seat of Chester, in a brutal first electoral test for Conservative PM Rishi Sunak

  1. Labour got 61.2% of the vote, while the Conservatives only got 22.4%, representing a 13.8% swing from Tory to Labour from the previous election, and the worst result for the Conservatives for this seat since 1832. If this swing holds for the next general election, the Tories are going to be utterly decimated. So much for the honeymoon period for the new PM. It's a shame that Sunak would never call a general election until 2024 or January 2025, which is the latest possible date to hold a general election as required by law.
