Corbyn Has Little to Celebrate in Britain's Local Elections

  • Recent national opinion polls have seen Conservatives and Labour running virtually neck-and-neck- but the local elections could be a different story

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell and International Trade Secretary Liam Fox both said the results so far were "mixed".

Councillor Kevin Buttery, the representative for Kilburn, Denby and Holbrook, says that his party swept to victory due to its members' work in the borough's communities.

The party has been in control of the city council since 2011, and before that from 1981 to 2007.

However, it wasn't all rosy for Labour, who lost Kersal to the Conservatives.

"There, at the moment, isn't really very much for the Labour Party to crow basically has come away frankly empty-handed relative to the expectation that it at least helped to build up", Curtice said.

It increased, as 63 investors sold MO shares while 521 reduced holdings. 34 funds opened positions while 56 raised stakes. Deutsche Bank reissued their buy rating on shares of IMI (LON:IMI) in a research report released on Wednesday, April 11th.

That said, the previous Conservative councillor for Walkden South, Les Turner, was still celebrating as he remains in post just down the road in Worsley, having switched to a notoriously safe seat for the party.

Labour targets outside of London include Dudley, Walsall and Stockport, where they are now the largest party but fall short of an overall majority.

But Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn will also be left concerned by the loss of councils.

At 5.30 a.m., with results in from 90 of the 150 English councils that were holding elections, Theresa May's Conservatives had a net gain of 11 seats, Labour had a net gain of 18, and the Liberal Democrats were up 40. May is also negotiating an exit from the European Union that 60 percent of the capital rejected at the 2016 Brexit referendum.

But a survey last week for Queen Mary University showed Labour were expected to be strong in London.

Corbyn has endured fierce criticism in recent weeks over the handling of anti-Semitism within his party.

The Labour Party gained a seat off the Tories in Belper East but the Conservatives gained in Heanor East, Heanor West and Ripley - all from Labour - to strengthen their grip on Amber Valley.

UKIP has suffered leadership issues and struggled for a new objective since achieving its primary political aim at the 2016 Brexit referendum when Britons made a decision to leave the EU.

The largest test of public opinion since last year's snap election took place amid complaints from Labour about a scheme requiring voters to provide identification.
