This is excellent news. The gloating Islamo-supremacist Shahid Malik has been ousted from his Dewsbury seat by Conservative Simon Reevell. Although the Tory share rose by a modest 3.3%, Malik's dropped by 8.4%. Much of this drop I suspect was the result of Khizar Iqbal's candidature. Evidently many of the towns Muslims opted to vote for this man instead. Disappointingly, the BNP vote slumped considerably here by 5.2% to 6%. Part of the reason for the decline must have been that many non-Muslim voters desperately wished to be rid of Malik, and who can blame them. Good riddance Shahid. The results in full are:
Simon Reevell (Conservative) 18,898 35.0 +3.3
Shahid Malik (Labour) 17,372 32.2 -8.4
Andrew Hutchinson (Liberal Democrat) 9,150 16.9 +3.2
Khizar Iqbal (Independent) 3,813 7.1 +7.1
Roger Roberts (British National Party) 3,265 6.0 -5.2
Adrian Cruden (Green) 849 1.6 -0.5
Michael Felse (English Democrats) 661 1.2 +1.2
Majority 1,526 2.8
Turnout 54,008 68.5 +9.2
