The Conservatives managed to do comparably as well in 2013 as they did in 1979 though in that election they held a seat going into it.  Interesting is that the 2012 by-elections are the second and fourth best results for the party.  

John Cummins result as a leader is not very good, he should have been one of the best results for the party in the election.  Clearly it is time for John Cummins to go, the only reason the media is not making an issue of it is because the party is not giving people a reason to take it seriously
