Here is a list of these councils, along with the time that we are anticipating their results to be declared.

If you are at a count for one of these councils or have any news on ward/council results, please tweet me @laurawilkes and I’ll get it on the live blog.

  • Peter Barnard

    Thank you, Laura Wilkes, for making this effort.

    You must be a great asset to your CLP.

    • Dave Postles

       Well said, indeed.  I add my gratitude.

  • Brumanuensis

    Thank you Laura, wonderful spreadsheet. Looking out for Rugby and Nuneaton in particular, as well as Brum of course.

    Voted today at the Church, during a rather doom-laden sounding organ recital. Slightly unusual setting!

  • Lauraeva

    Thanks Laura, I keenly await the result in Reading (Berks) where Labour should gain four seats, two or three from LibDem, one or two from Tory, and an ex-Tory standing as Independent who could win … Cons are self-destructing, losing a standing councillor as Independent and LibDems are on their way to wipeout !

    Either way Lab will have an overall majority of around six seats, and no longer have to pass a nod to the Greens who poisoned their chalice by demanding a council tax rise …

  • Ian Stewart

    Well, East Anglia looks good so far – Norwich and Great Yarmouth!

    Mind the £1.7 billion gap – there’s a looming crisis in adult social care

    As Labour councillors, it is important for us to speak up in defence of the voiceless victims of the Tories’ ideologically-driven austerity. There are many jobs performed by the state, but one of the most vital, and yet least seen, is caring for people who need it in their old age. Our ability to do that is now under threat, as is our ability to support disabled people to live independently, thanks to unprecedented Tory government cuts to local authorities […]

    Benn: Nuclear nations will keep bombs even if Trident is axed

    Hilary Benn warned that a UK exit from the European Union would weaken our opposition to ”Russian aggression”. The shadow Foreign Secretary highlighted the “moral interest” in European nations coming together to prevent conflict and tackle climate change and poverty. The speech, given at Chatham House this morning included the advice that Putin would “shed no tears” at a Brexit. Benn argued that the Russian leader would see a leave vote as a “sign of our weakness and of the […]

    Why Labour will oppose the Tory ‘pay more, get less’ plan for councils

    The Communities Secretary Greg Clark says he has protected funding for councils over the next four years, but no one left believes him, not even his own MPs. The Tories’ latest round of cuts takes away £1 in every £3 given to councils to pay for core services. What that means is youth services shut down, streets left unswept, bins emptied less frequently, street lights turned off at night, libraries closed, and rural bus services taken away.   Even Tory […]

    Case for the EU is “stronger than ever” – Benn

    Hilary Benn has today evoked the last Labour government’s successes on climate change and African debt relief in a heartfelt plea to persuade Britons to vote to stay in the EU. Benn, the shadow Foreign Secretary, highlighted the “moral interest” in European nations coming together to prevent conflict and tackle climate change and poverty. In a series of personal comments he also described his own transformation, from voting to leave in the last referendum, in 1975, to forming the belief […]

    What might be the path to Labour victory in 2020?

    Karin Smyth MP chaired the most recent meeting of Labour for the Common Good group in Parliament – this is her report. You can read all reports of the meetings here. There was a sociological dimension to last May’s crushing defeat. The biggest transformations in the structure of British society since 2010 – an ageing population and an employment shift from public to private sectors – swelled the numbers of voting categories which have traditionally been cold towards Labour. And so […]
