Fabian Hamilton, company secretary of Leeds reseller Serif Systems, scored a victory over his Tory rival on Thursday night and secured himself a Labour seat at Westminster.
Hamilton secured 22,368 votes, 7,000 more than Tory candidate Timothy Kirkhope. In 1992, he lost to the Tories by about 4,000 votes.
The three other employees at the Apple reseller were out celebrating with their boss until the small hours of Friday. New company secretary Phil McHardy said Hamilton had spent years in IT, but his heart had always been in politics. He was a Labour councillor before standing as a general election candidate for the first time in 1992.
In a recent interview with PC Dealer, Hamilton said he was committed to the European social chapter which would improve workers? rights and thereby increase the loyalty of employees. He also said that under Labour, businesses with fewer than 10 employees had always flourished.
