 Peter Fleet's statement was met with backlash

"Let that sink in.... 11,000 and 7000 voted for Corbyn's Labour.”

Aarib Bastani said: “With Tories losing Chesham and Amersham tonight Labour have no excuse regarding Batley and Spen on July 1st.

“The claim there is a ‘vaccine bounce’ for Tories won’t wash now.

“The truth is Labour haven’t provided an opposition. 2 weeks to make or break @Keir_Starmer leadership.

The victory for the Lib Dems mean they have eight seats in Parliament.
