As England 2015 is very close to completion, i have space to fit in a new scenario, after that. I'm putting this over Scotland 2015, for a good few reasons; 1. there's only ever been 3 by-election scenario's officially released (2 British, 1 Canadian). 2. By-elections are much more variable from each other and 3. I still don't have CFE :P

I'll help you choose which one you like the best, with links, and a heading to sum them up.

Wirral South 1997 By-election -Labour-Conservative Battle, Tory Government lose Majority.

I voted for Newbury, due to it's rather "wacky" nature (having had the longest ballot until the Haltemprice and Howden by-election of 2008).

Okay, enough votes, Newbury 1993 has won in a close vote, but has lead all the way. Any more votes are invalid.

I shall conduct another poll for the remianing 4, when it comes to doing another By-election.

My early vote for the next round is Glasgow Hillhead. I've always been intrigued by the history of the SDP, so it'd be fun to play a scenario where they're involved.

If it's any consolation, Roy Jenkins is involved in the upcoming Labour leadership 1976 election, as the 3rd placed candidate.
