18. Pretty dire in Derbyshire

Last edited Sat May 6, 2017, 04:54 AM - Edit history (2)

Most of the swing needed for the Tories to take my seat in a months time seems to be happening in my ward too!

Which is very bad news indeed as we had a very good Labour councillor, the incoming Tory in my ward is pretty dreadful and the Tories have made a lot of promises in the county council election campaign that they will not be able to keep.

The final tally in Derbyshire is like this

http://www.derbyshiretimes.co.uk/news/derbyshire-county-council-election-results-2017-live-1-8528211

Conservatives: 37 (+19) with a majority of 10

Labour: 24 (-19)

Liberal Democrats: 3


Tories have also won the mayoral contests for West Midlands and Tees Valley. Both utterly dreadful results for Labour, although you do wonder what boundaries were drawn up for those "city regions".
