Therefore, the results notched up by Labour in Witney, no doubt based on years of tireless and often daunting campaigning in the deepest blue Tory heartlands deserve the highest praise.
Not only did Labour's Robert Evans win in Chipping Norton (966 votes) the home of what the press have labelled the "Chipping Norton Set" but also securing two wards (Andrew Coles -Witney Central and Duncan Enright - Witney East) in the Witney and securing a staggering 39% of votes across the five Witney wards.
Congratulations to all those involved
