Total Wipe Out

That's the only way to describe the Liberal Democrat performance in the Barnsley by-election yesterday. They were second in the general election and sixth yesterday. They came in behind UKIP and the BNP losing their deposit in the process with their proportion of their votes going down by 13%.

It wasn't exactly a good day for the Tories either, being beaten to the second spot by UKIP.

Dan Jarvis (Lab) 14,724 (60.80%, +13.53%)
Jane Collins (UKIP) 2,953 (12.19%, +7.53%)
James Hockney (C) 1,999 (8.25%, -9.01%)
Enis Dalton (BNP) 1,463 (6.04%, -2.90%)
Tony Devoy (Ind) 1,266 (5.23%, +3.58%)
Dominic Carman (LD) 1,012 (4.18%, -13.10%)

As one twwet said, "I wonder what Nick Clegg is doing today?"
