‘THANKS to all those who made this amazing victory possible’
The words of Conservative candidate Nigel Rumble, who lost by more than 1,000 votes in the Camden Town with Primrose Hill council by-election yesterday. It was Labour, of course, romped to victory through their man Lazzaro Pietragnoli.He got 1,847, Nigel got 823. The Lib Dems got 748.
Nigel, understandably mistaken for lookey-likey George Clooney while out watching the Opera Babes in the days before the election, also uses his post-vote blogpost to warn everybody that he’s already looking ahead to the boroughwide Town Hall elections in 2014.
Surely after an amazing victory like this and being such good value on the campaign trail, he has earned a roll at a safe seat. Do the decent thing Camden Conservatives, make it happen.
