    Default Inverclyde Westminster by-election date set

    BBC News - Inverclyde Westminster by-election date set
    The Inverclyde Westminster by-election is expected to take place on 30 June, with the main parties making jobs and the economy their top priority.

    It follows the death last month of sitting Labour MP David Cairns, from pancreatitis, at the age of 44.

    Labour has a majority of 14,416 in Inverclyde, but holds the Scottish Parliament seat of Greenock and Inverclyde by 511 votes.

    You would have thought that with the euro currency crisis in Greece being on the news every day for weeks, that UKIP would have done better.

    What have I missed here?

    One year ago in the General Election 2010 UKIP got 433 votes.

    But only 288 in 2011.
