Tories topple Labour stronghold; Corbyn in the dock again
The Conservatives captured the west Cumbrian seat for the first time in more than 80 years, reversing the traditional pattern of governing parties losing by-elections while in office.
Labour's campaign chief Ian Lavery claimed the Tories won the seat because people feel a general distrust of politicians - but not Jeremy Corbyn.
But there was some comfort for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn after his party held on to a parliamentary seat in the English city of Stoke. Copeland contains the Sellafield nuclear plant - the biggest local employer - and is close to where nuclear submarines are built.
While Labour won Thursday's Stoke-on-Trent Central by-election, its share of the vote fell by more than two per cent.
Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party, addresses a protest against the Trident nuclear missile system in London, February 27, 2016. Pittella reassured Corbyn that the S&D group would resist the Conservative Party's "ultra-hard Brexit", instead the S&D Group are calling on a "fair Brexit".
Meanwhile Gerald Jones, a Labour shadow Welsh minister, told BBC Radio Wales the result was "a significant set back for us as a party and one that we have to now rebuild from".
Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell claimed that the nuclear issue was "a unique" factor, and that Blair's intervention and the failed "coup" attempt by Labour MPs past year were partly to blame.
Labour is behind the Tories by 18 points, according to the last opinion poll by ICM, and even some of Mr Corbyn's former cheerleaders appear to be getting cold feet. Prepare to be told that this defeat is not Jeremy Corbyn's fault, but behind the spin, Corbyn's misjudgements are the cause of Labour's woes.

"We agree with Corbyn on a lot of priorities: We have the moral obligation to stand against any plan to detach the United Kingdom completely from Europe".
Labour could reconnect with voters if it stressed its own policies backing Trident and nuclear power, rather than Corbyn's personal views on both, she suggested.
She said May's local elections in England, Scotland and Wales are now "absolutely vital" as Labour under Mr Corbyn pose a "danger" to local services.
According to Corbyn, Labour's "message was not enough to win through in Copeland", but he praised the party's victory in Stoke-on-Trent.
He wrote: "As a party we have forgotten our roots, and have arrogantly assumed that our core support would stay loyal because it has nowhere else to go".
"I was elected to lead this party, I was elected to oppose austerity and to oppose the redistribution of wealth in the wrong direction, which is what this Government is doing".
Setting out the measures the Government has taken already on social care, the Prime Minister said that "more money is not the only answer" but that the Government also "recognise the need for far-reaching reform to encourage high standards across the whole country".
