Shock victory for LibDems in Henley?

Could the Liberal Democrats pull off another by-election shocker? I don't know but many journalists from the Daily Telegraph to the Guardian think this might be so. The votes are now being ferried to the count as I type this out. One thing I do know is that the Conservatives have a couple of things going against them. First, the people of Henley have lost a popular well-known MP who has decided to plough a different furrow. This does have some reflection on Henley and the surrounding villages, as being of lesser interest politically to the effervescent Boris. Then there is the rumbling of minor sleeze, odd bouts of disunity, unclarity over policy, which have added to the gossip that the Conservative candidate may not do so well. I hope he does well, but echoes of Bromley are sounding in my ears. Ugh!!
