Northallerton (North Yorkshire) result:
CON: 48.3% (-4.1)
UKIP: 20.5% (-10.6)
LAB: 17.2% (+0.7)
YFIR: 9.7% (+9.7)
GRN: 4.3% (+4.3)


An impressive swing to Yorkshire First. They may sound like a Harry Enfield sketch but they seem a nice enough bunch of civic minded regionalists. Notice there are no Lib Dems standing.

Location: Sunny Surrey where the vines sit smugly in the sunshine.
#1 son's in-laws live in that constituency. They may well be the only Labour voters in the village.

They certainly don't seem to like That London, with its fancy southern ways.

If civic regionalist parties start challenging UKIP for the dustbin vote in the North this will do Labour no harm.
