Good results in Birmingham
We were very pleased to win Hodge Hill and move into second place in Tyburn. This means that our sitting Councillor in Tyburn will be able to hold her seat in 2008.
We were also pleased to hold Springfield (a seat we lost last year).
Notwithstanding the framing of our candidate in Bordesley for postal vote misdirection he still won 2,628 votes against Labour's 3,908.
Sadly we lost Dilawar Khan in Sparkbrook. He had his nose broken at the start of the campaign and his car smashed up on election day. This is a worrying movement towards more violent campaigns that Respect need to be held responsible for.
