4000 majority! That's huge by British standards. David told me he would win when I saw him a few months ago, but every good politician believes that.
In his acceptance speech, David said: “This has been an extraordinary campaign, an extraordinary day, and an extraordinary result. Cambridge has rejected Tony Blair's war, his tuition fees, his council tax, and his 'third way'.”
