Conservative Win Big In UK Elections

That's neat!

Local elections: Labour suffers heavy losses as UKIP crumbles

The Conservatives have enjoyed a strong showing in local election results overnight, with UKIP's vote collapsing and Labour also losing a number of seats.

Votes have been cast in elections to 88 councils in England, Scotland and Wales, plus mayoral contests which include six new devolved super-regions.

The Tories have control of nine of the 18 authorities declared so far in England and Wales, gaining Gloucestershire, Isle of Wight, Lincolnshire, Warwickshire and Monmouthshire.

Many of the gains were at the expense of UKIP, with the party losing all of its councillors in Essex and Lincolnshire - the county where leader Paul Nuttall is hoping to win a Westminster seat next month.

The party is yet to win a single seat across the country, a far cry from its breakthrough performance in 2013.

Sky's elections expert Michael Thrasher said UKIP's share of the national vote could fall as low as 3%, down from 22% four years ago.

Premier expects to increase the presence of parties in Parliament and thereby get rid of additional problems in the negotiations with the European Union. The current local elections as opinion polls give her every reason to believe that it is on track to achieve its goal. Recently found a story where a guy described a similar in other countries.
