The swing to the Lib Dems Continues

by David Walker on 11 February, 2017

Local Council By Election results continue the tremendous swing to the Lib Dems and the loss of confidence in other parties.

In part this is due to the stirling efforts of local parties and local candidates, but it is also a growing recognition the the Conservatives are threatening all our futures by withdrawing from free access to the largest market for our goods and services, for no good reason. And clearly there is no enthusiasm for the Labour party in its present state.

These are two results this week.

LD Marion Millership 649 [55.1%; +31.6%]

Conservative 410 [34.8%; -3.7%]
