Local elections.

No exitement so far, a big MEH!, for Cons and Labs, Labour thrived in London but business as usual outside, musical chairs it seems. Lib Dems seem to have come out of the coma of recent years.
UKIP though had the stake through the heart, no surprise there for most folk, I bet they look with envy at the Greens share!

The results are now in from 94 of the 150 councils holding elections. Here are the latest figures.

Conservatives

Councils: 28 (-1)

Seats: 776 (-11)

Labour

Councils: 48 (-1)

Seats: 1,291 (+44)

Lib Dems

Councils: 4 (+1)

Seats: 324 (+45)

Greens

Seats: 21 (+6)

Ukip

Seats: 2 (-41)

Re: Local elections.

Labour , Greens and Ukip do not even bother to canvas around here , no results yet but it will be a resounding blue rinse as usual .

Six and a half thousand sackfuls to conservative , four sacks for Lib Dem and prop that rickety table leg with the rest .

Ces't la vie as they say in our Local Majestic Wine .

Re: Local elections.

Theresa should take heart from this, being strong and stable she should call another election to strengthen the strong and stable Government she now leads, with permission from the Ulster bosses of course, what could possibly go wrong?

Just out of interest, are you entitled to vote in it?
