Independents can win

An 18 year old student has won a by-election in St Ives. Tom Bletsoe won a by-election held for St Ives Town Council.

The Result:

456 Tom Bletsoe (Independent)

382 Daniel Rigby (Conservative)

184 Barry Wills (Independent)

85 John Oliver (Liberal Democrat)

22.1 per cent turnout

The Independent candidates took over 57% of the vote. 
What happened to the Liberal Democrats in all this? Looking at their "Flock Together" website they ended up in Cornwall.
Martin Land does it again!
