As Iain Dale has noticed, the local elections were generally pretty good for the Tories. Except this one.
But 72-year-old Mrs Bowes managed to come in with an almost unprecedented zero.

In an electoral quirk she couldn't even vote for herself because she lives outside the ward she was standing for.

A tip of the horns and flick of the pointy tail to Pommygranate.

Even then... I thought that you needed 10 people on the electoral register to propose you before you could stand... What happened to the other 5?
