    Traditionally Labour voters don't bother to vote in inclement weather. Planning the by-election for a massive storm is blatant gerrymandering from the Tories.

    IIRC, Labour were in the low 40s and the Tories were in the mid 30s in 2015, so 3rd would be an unprecedented collapse in the Labour vote...

    That's a fair point, actually....weather will definitely reduce turnout and that won't help Labour. But Corbyn has the drag of an end-of-days storm...

    Nah. I assume Andrew Neil is on, but I can't be fecked TBH. Labour hold in Stoke, Tory gain in Copeland, I reckon.

    Turnout Stoke 38% Turnout Copeland 51%

    Results impossible to predict and Corbyn not going.

    First time I ever remember a Govt turning over an opposition in a by election. Normally the other way around.
