Was the Oldham West by-election a test for Corbyn?

Labour has won a comfortable victory in the Oldham West by-election with candidate Jim McMahon getting a 10,835-vote majority.

McMahon’s vote share was 62% – higher than at the general election.

The by-election is the first since the General Election in May and was triggered by the death of Michael Meacher, the constituency’s long-serving Labour MP.

It was billed as a test of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s politics and, if that’s what it was, then he passed with flying colours as Labour received the best result of any party ever in that seat.

However, runner up party UKIP said they had seen evidence to suggest the postal vote was “bent” and called for an investigation.
