... and the soap opera rolls on.

Louise Mensch has taken to Twitter to accept the blame for the Conservatives' predicted defeat in Corby, the seat she controversially quit mid-term.

In a seemingly pre-emptive bid to excuse the Tories failure to hold the Northamptonshire seat, Mensch said the election result would not be a verdict on either the party or its candidate Christine Emmett but rather on her decision to stand down to move to New York.

Funny how it always seems to be about her.

2. Never mind Mensch...

The behaviour of Chris Heaton-Harris and John Hayes hasn't helped their cause either.

It's difficult to muster up support for a candidate if their election manager is covertly supporting another candidate.
