That should be a wake up call for the Tories:Labour has narrowly seen off a Brexit Party challenge to hold on to its Peterborough seat in a by-election.
Union activist Lisa Forbes retained the constituency for Labour, taking 31% of the vote and beating the Brexit Party's Mike Greene (29%) by 683 votes.
Ms Forbes hailed her "significant" victory and said it showed people had "rejected the politics of division".
But the Brexit Party, founded just under two months ago, said "something very significant" had happened.
Its about time the Tories started some fence building if they are to win the next election

Yes if you believe Brexit will be bad if it ever happens, then you can be guaranteed that Labour will see a greater outflow of funds from the country than Brexit ever could. Hard Brexit downside would be seen as an opportunity while a Labour gov would be a signal to leave.
"Ms Forbes hailed her "significant" victory and said it showed people had "rejected the politics of division".
won by just over 600 votes so hardly signficiant ........we demand a re-run of the election, another peoples vote...
i like that well said
A re-run will happen at the next general election. Probably not too long to wait!

31% of the vote share
A win by 607 seats
-17% on last turn out.
Hardly a ringing endorsement but that is all it would take on a national scale to get these muppets in!
Professor John Curtice who does the BBC polls has just been on Daily Politics show on BBC 2.
A prospective labour candidate was on telling everyone how the Labour Party was now poised to win the next election based on this result.
He tore her argument apart with facts rather than her bullshyte. He said the result was totally predictable given Brexit and the current malaise amongst the electorate.
He said the Labour Party were delusional if they thought that this share of the electorate would result in them winning a general election.
I then turned over to BBC 1 News, just in time to see Jeremy Corbyn, in full-on, wide-eyed ranting mode, reiterating the fantasy of an impending general election, followed by his triumphant march along Downing St to the steps of No 10.
The next scheduled election is a long way off yet. A lot can happen in three years. Magic Grandpa will be 73 by then. The starry eyed idealistic kids that originally voted him in, will be seven years older by then.
We're going to ask our kids, who stand to inherit a property worth millions, if they are going to vote for Jeremy again, bearing in mind that he plans to take their inheritance from them, and build a block of flats in our nice big back garden.
We'll see how idealistic they are in 2022.
You can say what you like about Labour (and I have nothing good to say about them) but because of continued Con stuff-ups they are giving Labour a very good chance of winning the next election. 10 years is a long time in UK politics and the Cons have shown they are clueless. That gives Labour the opportunity to BS the electorate with more of their Robin Hood politics to those that haven't already experienced it first hand yet.
There are now questions being asked about the legitimacy of the narrow labour win in the light of emerging evidence of postal vote rigging by Labour - again!
I would have thought that loophole would have been well and truly closed
Now it emerges that the previous MP Fiona O was probably also aided to victory by the same vote rigging guru
Very dirty politics
Fascinating how people still support there Tories after the abhorrent way they treat people not least landlords. They do not represent commerce and enterprise and never will. They only care about rigging the economy to benefit the elite of which none of you people come close.
