Glasgow East we know about now. Terrible news for Labour, good news for the SNP and bad news for Gordon Brown. But any attempts to pass this off as a Scottish phenomenon should be ignored when you look at the result from a key by-election in Westminster.
Labour, featuring ex Blur drummer Dave Rowntree as their candidate, lost the previously solid Labour Church Street Ward by 202 votes.
It is sometimes possible for ruling parties nationally to pick off council seats in areas which are controlled by another party (in Westminster's case the Tories), but when Labour are losing solid Labour council seats and solid Labour Parliamentary seats on the same day in different parts of the country AND to different opposition parties, it seems more than ever now that the electorate's view is that they will vote for anything but Labour.
