Brecon & Radnorshire voted to leave the EU by 51.9%-48.1% in 2016.
The by-election was triggered because the Conservative MP had been found guilty of committing expenses fraud. In their wisdom they put the very same man to stand as a candidate.
Plaid and the Greens stepped aside to allow the Lib Dems a clear run, in a Remain Alliance.
The Brexit Party took votes away from the Tories.
It looks like Labour voters voted tactically for the Lib Dems, preferring that to seeing the Conservative win the seat.
With all those factors at play, if anyone reckons they can workout what will happen in a General Election from this result, then they are better than me. (this could be the case)

3Prong Attack the podcast/prongcast I co-present, sometimes choose a team to support during the football season. We like the club to reflect us in some way. With this in mind should we support Bury FC for the 2019/20 season? Let me know via the comments button or @anunknowncomic Cheers
Apparently Zoe Ball has lost 780 000 listeners from the Radio 2 Breakfast show in 3 months. I have to applaud her for this. It’s better to shed people who aren’t keen on what you do than have them sniping from the side. Over the years I’ve managed to whittle the people who like what I do down to 8-15 (and I’m one of the 8-15). Anyway back to Zoe, are you one of those 780 000 listeners & if so what do you listen to in the morning instead? Let me know via the comments button or @anunknowncomic. Cheers

I’m surprised more hasn’t been made of Boris Johnson’s cabinet appointments of Dominic ‘contempt of parliament’ Cummings, Priti ‘trade deals on hols’ Patel & Gavin ‘national security’ Williamson. Does this happen in the real world, have you been sacked only to go back to the same company a few months later in a more senior position? Let me know via the comments button or @anunknowncomic Thanks.

There’s 42 bus companies in Greater Manchester. Having lived in Manchester for more years than I’ve not, I don’t think I could name 5. It just goes to show, you wait ages for 1 bus company to bid for a route then 42 come along at once. @anunknowncomic Feel free to check out my comedy prongcast. Cheers
The young boffins who monitor ‘my reach’ tell me that in the last 2 weeks, outside of the UK, my 1minblog is most popular in India. Apparently if I can crack India, I’ll never have to work again. So before I hit the big time I just want to say “so long suckers!”
