We lost by 118 votes out of over 3000 cast. Ah well, was a good showing and we can build on that once the Independents are out o the picture, I'll put more on Halifax Lib Dems later.
Microblogging using LoudTwitter and Twitter. [ profile] matgb_twitter is there if you're mad enough. Hopefully I've fixed the recursion problem, and if you'd rather this was cut, then editing your LJ code to do so is easy.
