Hearing result in Peterborough is very close....Labour and BXP anxious. It’s going to be fascinating.
Relatively few Tories actually bothered to turn up to campaign today by all accounts but those who did aren’t happy. One texts:

“V angry with some of the things that happened today. When we went inside flats we were asked to take leaflets left by other parties them out...”
”...so the residents don’t see them, me being a Tory but supporter of the Brexit party in private found this very infuriating, in the end we collected more than a few hundred leaflets from other parties.”

Not an ideal strategy.
One Labour activist tells me “there’s been an incredible ground game for us- more than 500 activists on the door. Worry is Lib Dems have snatched too many of our votes. Think the Brexit Party might have just got it.” #PeterboroughByElection
That was v much impression from being there this week, not so much BXP would storm it, Peterborough isn’t ideal terrain for them but more that Lab would seem too much to Lib Dems and would cost them the seat. We’ll see.
Wowser, v high turnout for a by election....
Instinctively feel that has to be a v good sign for Labour...
At 48% #PeterboroughByElection turnout is 3rd highest of last dozen.

Newport West-37%
Lewisham East- 33%
Copeland- 51%
Stoke on Trent Central-38%
Sleaford & N Hykeham- 37%
Richmond- 53%
Witney- 47%
Batley & Spen- 26%
Sheffield Brightside- 33%
I didn’t meet the UKIP candidate when I went to Peterborough on Tuesday but now I’m sorely regretting I didn’t.

When asked “what’s the naughtiest thing you’ve ever done” he’s just said “nothing.”

Frankly, I’m finding that hard to believe.
Just bear in mind, whatever happens tonight, something extraordinary: no one is even talking about the Tories being even contention, no one expecting them to even come second. They’ve been completely displaced.

They lost in 2017 by 600 votes.

Brexit Party sources gone unusually quiet. Labour Party sources not so much. Read into that what you will.
Am told Farage has left the building. Must mean a Labour hold.
