Taking Stock - Lib Dems' party empties the house.
In what some considered to be the biggest plus for Charles Kennedy since becoming leader of the Lib Dems, his party won the local by-election in Romsey. As expected, much celebrating was done by the Kennedy camp, but over at Romsey-based firm Langdowns DFK it was a different story. The firm is situated over the premises the Conservatives used as its by-election HQ. And according to partners, party officials looked decidedly sheepish the morning after. The Tories apparently managed to vacate the building in double quick time.
