Will it be a drumming for the Conservatives given their drive towards national economic suicide
Or Will Labour gain as a result of their indecision on Brexit
Or what other issues will swing it?
Counting starts at 11pm


Edit: England (or part of) local elections

Labour dominate London, Tories grow in the North. It continues to point to Labour not having enough support to win a GE, but that gets hidden because people will look at the simple numbers from London and incorrectly apply them at a national level.

To provide context: in the last edition of these votes in 2014, Miliband oversaw a net swing of 550 from Tories to Labour. Then he lost the GE in a swing of 50 seats a year later.

It’s a historically weak and unpopular Govt who are having a terrible 2 weeks. It should be a blowout. It won’t be.

That's a likely outcome because Corbyn is Labour leader. And the reason Labour lost in 2014 was because Miliband was leader :(

Sad for Labour if there is such an outcome.

I asked the same in post #5

If there is a low turnout it won't change anything at Westminster level as it is no real barometer of the electorate's view other than indifference.

My bad, I missed your question looking at the picture.

According to the BBC website overall Labour retains control of Sunderland. It's the only council declared so far.

UKIP finally seem to be gone
A shameful episode in the English story is now over
Hopefully that will lead to common sense all around

UKIP only existed as a niche alternative to what the Conservatives/Labour were either unwilling or unable to provide.

I can think of a dozen worse episodes in England's political history.

They've achieved their primary goal - the same thing happened to the Irish Parliamentary Party in 1918.

Single issue parties never endure.
