A prediction for Chopwell and Rowlands Gill byelection
Chopwell and Rowlands Gill byelection in Gateshead today. This is normally a rock solid Labour ward. The Chopwell area has been represented by Labour since the First Eorld War. But Labour is going through a decidely bad patch and the question is, what effect will this have in CRG. The canvass has been encouraging but I like to believe these things when they happen. My feeling is that there will be a low turnout and Labour will hold on, though with a rather slimmed down majority compared to the supersized one they normally have. We will know in about 4 hours.
