Tories win Ayr - Labour disgraced
J Scott (Conservative) 12580
J Mather (SNP) 9236
R Miller (Labour) 7054
The conservative nature of Ayrs farmers shone through as the Tory party
won their first Scottish by-election in 30 years!
Labour's show was poor.
The SNP need to do better, but as they beat Labour into third place thats
good for now!
