UK election: anti Blair Labourite wins in Wales
ModBlog is down, so I'll continue here.
Peter Law, ex Labour anti Blair rebel, won victory over the official Labour candidate.
In his victory speech, and later BBC TV interview, in Blaenau Gwent constituency in Wales, Law said: "Our message we send to Tony Blair, is that's what you get when you don't listen to the people, but manipulate, as is symptomatic for Blair's "New" Labour. As a Left wing person, I will support Left measures."
Blair himself won Sedgefield, as expected. But he "looked rather battered" the BBC said.
