Labour wins Feltham by-election

Ed Miliband has said that his party's victory in the Feltham and Heston by-election "offers a verdict on the Government's failed economic plan". Speaking to supporters after last night's victory, Mr Miliband said: "Let’s take this fight forward, let’s take this argument forward, let’s fight… for the people of Britain".

Labour held the Feltham and Heston seat with an 8% swing to the party from the Conservatives. The by-election - held after the death of Alan Keen - was won by Seema Malhotra, who polled a majority of 6,203 over the Tories.

Ms Malhotra described the victory as a "wake-up call" for the Government, and said it was a sign Labour "is changing, listening harder, winning back the trust of the people we seek to serve".

The result comes as Ed Miliband has insisted Labour's claims that the Government is cutting "too far and too fast" will be vindicated and that the party is winning the argument for a "new form of capitalism".

In an end-of-year interview with the Financial Times, Mr Miliband is insistent that the fragile economy will remain the political "battleground" next year and that his argument will eventually win through.
