Labour has lost the once safe seat of Brent East to the Liberal Democrats.
Commentators estimate a 29% swing!
This is the biggest bloody nose this government or any government I can remember has received.
Blairs unflinching support for Bush's war against Iraq.
Domestic issues were put in the background as the people of London came out to vote.
When 2 million came out on the eve of war this government ignored them but this morning the people have spoken and no government can ignore them now.
They are saying Blair get out!
This all on the eve of the conference season.
Labour had a majority of 13,047,the Lib Dems now have a majority 1,018.
I'll post a link when mainstream sites catch up.
