LD gains from Labour

Birmingham Yardley - this is probably the fallout of the collapse of Rover.

Manchester Withington with a huge swing to the LDs. I would guess an anti-war vote, but that is a guess.

Cardiff Central - this was a LD target, no.4 on their list, so 'should' have fallen on the basis of what is happening elsewhere, and has.

On the basis of these I think it is plain that the LDs should have aimed more aggressively at Labour. I think they still have a sentimental attachment to rural voters, but their policies are now more urban, more socialist, so I doubt they will have as many seats as they could have done.
