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.

    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!

    Whatever happened to the Angela Eagle leadership launch?

    There is now unlikely to be a challenge to Jeremy Corbyn until next week, following the postponement of Angela Eagle’s leadership launch today. Eagle’s campaign was scheduled to kick off this afternoon, but was put on ice following a series of events this morning. Sources close to her campaign say that this is a delay rather than a cancellation, and that she still intends to go ahead with a challenge to Corbyn. They claim the delay is caused by several […]

    Corbyn critics aim to recruit “army of moderates” to win new leadership contest

      Labour MPs opposed to Jeremy Corbyn hope to replicate the success of last summer’s left-wing recruitment drive and sign up thousands of new members who will back a centrist candidate in a fresh leadership election. A series of high-profile politicians and activists, ranging from Jamie Reed to ex-spin doctor Alastair Campbell and novelist Robert Harris, have indicated support for Saving Labour, an online initiative which says the party requires “new, strong leadership”. The project, whose origins are uncertain, appears designed […]

    Smeeth calls for Corbyn to quit in favour of leader with “backbone” to tackle anti-Semitism

    Ruth Smeeth today called on Jeremy Corbyn to resign in favour of someone with the “backbone” to tackle anti-Semitism after the Labour leader provoked anger among activists with his comments over the State of Israel. Smeeth spoke out after being harassed by a voter today at the launch of Labour’s report into allegations of anti-Semitism and other forms of racism in the party. The angry voter accused her of “colluding” with right-wing newspapers and being part of a media conspiracy against Corbyn, Smeeth, […]

    Reynolds issues complaint to Labour HQ over claims of a “secret” group of McDonnell advisors

      Backbencher Emma Reynolds has issued a complaint to Labour headquarters over claims John McDonnell has set up a “parallel organisation” to develop party health policy. Reynolds, chair of the parliamentary Labour Party (PLP) health committee, said it was “surprising and disappointing” that McDonnell, the shadow Chancellor, had apparently chosen to work with the campaigners, who have served as recent members of rival political parties. McDonnell has “set up a secret group of advisers to help shape Labour’s stance on the […]

    Labour is not “overrun” by anti-Semitism but Corbyn sparks dismay over Israel comments

    The Labour Party is “not overrun by anti-Semitism”, according to the findings of an urgent review published today. The Chakrabarti Inquiry into anti-Semitism and other forms of racism was commissioned by Jeremy Corbyn in April, following a series of damaging rows which were sparked by the comments of former London Mayor Ken Livingstone and MP Naz Shah. Corbyn today once again condemned all forms of prejudice but provoked anger with comments which appeared to compare the state of Israel to Islamist terrorists. The […]
