Glasgow Disillusionment?

Only 33.2% turned out for the recent by-election in Glasgow North East with Willie Bain, the local Labour candidate, winning with 12231 votes. The contest was triggered by the resignation of Michael Martin, the former Speaker of the House of Commons and now Lord Martin of Springburn.
Only 33.2%! Is this the public saying "what's the point, they're all as bad as each other"?
