Corby 'bloodbath' expected at lunchtime.

The Conservative Party has lost its deposit in Manchester Central only receiving 754 votes which was only 5 more than UKIP on 749. And now tbg. has been informed this morning that the Tories in Corby are expecting a "bloodbath" of a hammering in Corby when the result is declared at lunchtime.

One source says that it could even be on the same scale to Labour losing the Crewe by-election to Edward Timpson under the last government.

With turn out now confirmed at 44.8% tbg. is expecting a Labour majority of between 8-10,000.

UKIP also seem chipper today, there's is chatter among their ranks of beating the Tories in Corby into 3rd place. Time will tell.

UPDATE: Labour gain Corby from the Conservatives with a majority of 7,786.
