Simple. The party lost votes to the left (Lib-Dems) and to the right (Reform UK).

I bet many who had their political wakening during the past 14 years are dismayed at how quickly the moment of triumph passes.

If this were a football competition, there would be days of boozy celebration, an open-top bus tour of the city and a glitzy civic reception.
