What an amazing victory. There is no doubt now that the Labour Party and our Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, are back in the race. Even more so as both the Tories and Lib Dems lost their deposits. Although Glenrothes was always going to be a contest between Labour and the SNP, the exceptionally poor showing by the two major opposition parties may be significant for a general election.

Gordon took a brave decision to campaign in the constituency which clearly paid off. Sarah was, as ever, a tremendous asset. It’s good to see her taking a higher profile role, and the great thing about Sarah is that she invariably makes the right judgement about what her role should be.

Congratulations to Lindsay Roy, obviously a well known and popular local head teacher and community stalwart. This by-election pressed all the right buttons. I’m even more confident now that we, the Labour Party can, and will, keep it up.
