    PoliticsHome Labour wins in Oldham East Story View links

    Tory MP Douglas Carswell has lashed out at the party's lacklustre campaign in the Oldham East by-election. Although David Cameron said he was "proud" of the Tory effort, Mr Carswell said that the Conservatives' poor third was because candidate Kashif Ali was "let down" by the leadership. "It is usually a good idea if you want to do well as a party to make it clear that you are serious about trying to win," Mr Carswell said. Ed Miliband has said the Oldham and Saddleworth election is a sign the Government should "think again" on policies such as the VAT rise and cuts to police numbers. Mr Miliband called on the leaders of both the other parties to heed voters' concerns."I think part of what politics should be about in this country is listening to the voters. That’s what David Cameron and Nick Clegg should do.” Earlier, Shadow Foreign Secretary Yvette Cooper said this morning that Labour's win represented a "verdict" on the Coalition. She told Today: "[People] feel worried about their jobs, they feel very angry about VAT." Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said the second place finish for the Lib Dems was a "strong" result: “I think the strong result for the Liberal Democrats in this by-election shows that whether we’re in Government or in opposition, we remain a strong, united, independent party." Labour won with a majority of 3,500 over the Liberal Democrats while the Conservatives came a distant third, with their share of the vote falling by 7,000.  < Party chairman Baroness Warsi denied that the Conservatives had fought a lacklustre campaign. Despite his party coming second, Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg claimed the result would "confound" his party's critics. Deputy Lib Dem leader Simon Hughes denied that his party had a series of crisis meetings planned for this morning following the by-election results.

    The Liberal Democrats have accused Labour of “playing dirty” in the Oldham East and Saddleworth campaign. The Lib Dems highlighted party literature stating that Labour’s candidate Debbie Abrahams had lived in Newhey, very close to Oldham, with her family for 25 years. Last year, when Ms Abrahams ran unsuccessfully to become a Labour MP in Colne Valley, she claimed to live in Longwood, almost 15 miles away.
