|NOSEY OLD DAME|
The Dame, discreetly veiled, managed to overhear that the H&F gang were blaming Pooter for diverting them from what they considered could have been victory on their own patch.
Had they not done so they might have done better in H&F...or at least, that is their moan.
And had they refused the Stanley Ward results might have been a bit different.
But many are asking whether this could be a 'UKIP Moment' for the Chelsea Independents.
With no political organisation behind them and none of the postal votes, crucial to Conservative success, they made massive inroads into the Conservative vote and left Labour well behind them.
So three inexperienced campaigners managed an aggregate of 1376 in the most Tory of strongholds.
By any measure Barshall, Henderson and Schumi did well.
