Prize winning in Gateshead
After the trouncing we gave Labour in Gateshead in the local elections in May, Gateshead Lib Dems have now won an award from the North East regional party. Labour had assumed they would win all but one of our seats on the council. Their campaign was a flop. They gained none of our seats and came close to losing one of theirs to us.
The award was announced on Saturday at the regional conference, held at the Jurys Inn hotel on the Gateshead Quays. Former Secretary of State for Scotland, Michael Moore, presented the award.
