Fascinating stat about the Richmond by election. Labour got less votes than it has party members in the constituency.
It is rumoured that some of them were helping our campaign. But I didn't meet anyone in the office who introduced themselves as a Labour party member.

That sort of thing isn't unprecedented. There's a Tory who helps LibDem campaigns in Cambridge, because he knows the Tory will come third and he thinks a LibDem MP is less bad than a Labour one.
