Edit: and here are the figures: Barnes: Rebecca Atkinson (Lab) 2041; Gouilnara Dixon (Lib) 150; Tony Morrissey (Sitting Con councillor) 1486.  Not even close.

Now that's nice news to see when you log in...

Early results i'm reading about suggesting huge swings away from the ConDems.

A Cambridge Green councillor defected to Labour this morning.

Labour +1.

Cambridge's other Green councillor (in the same ward) is stepping down at this election and Labour will be hoping to do well there. There's a good chance the Lib Dems lose their majority tonight, but even with the defection this morning Labour would need a very good night to become the largest party.

Labour just carried Linacre ward in Sefton with 92% of the vote! Surprise

Linacre ward is in Bootle, so the smiley ain't necessary.

Sunderland has finished counting.  Well done to them.

There cannot have been a by-election here, as I didn't see an Andrew Teale writeup on it. Or else that by-election's validity should be challenged on the grounds that it was held without Andrew's written approval

Labour about a hundred votes off gaining Fulwell. Comedy percentages in the Red Belt.

Rumours that Manchester is a redwash again.

Turnout seems to be bad in many places, though of course it was high last year and that's what it's being compared with.

Early rumours suggest No to mayor in Birmingham; hopefully others will follow.
Excellent news.

Hope you're all staying up 'til 4? Wink

LOL

Actually found myself glad they've kept it simple earlier just remembering that crap.

Also Cheesy at the Sunderland result.

The graphics/trend shown a few moments ago on regional gains/losses by parties was great. Shown what many were arguing last year - gains from the Liberals (in the South) hidden Tory losses.

There were some bizarre results last year down south. WTF went on in Eastleigh? Massive Liberal gains.

Sayeedi Warsi just implied that the BNP and UKIP are in cahoots together because there's a correlation between UKIP fielding more candidates and BNP fielding less.

She really is crazy.

Curious rumours from Bradford, with Labour apparently having won the postal votes in City and Manningham, so much less promising for Respect than earlier.

Labour have made huge gains in Nuneaton. And... er... the Greens have picked up a seat on the eternally Tory side of town.

Apparently Labour have won Charlemont with Grove Vale on Sandwell MBC, which was the one ward there they didn't win last year.  So maybe another redwash on the cards.
