Labour Plunges to Third Place!

The results from yesterdays council elections are no where near completed yet. Only about half of the councils have declared results as I write this but it is looking bad for Labour.

The BBC has reported "The projection puts the Conservatives on 38%, the same as their performance in 2000, the Lib Dems on 30% and Labour on 26% if the local votes were repeated in a general election."

Many reporters are feeling this is a reeflection on the publics views on Blair and the war in Iraq. It'll be interesting to see the final results and also hear the renewed calls amongst sectors of the Labour party for a change of leadership. Not that I suspect it'll change in the near future ;-p

The BNP didn't gain any more seats, but they also didn't loose any. Not at the current count anyway - there are still some results to be declared, but its perceived they've not done as well. I think this is partially due to the UKIP and to a lesser extent the Conservatives. UKIP has sort of split away some of the BNP vote.

As a quick update - it seems that the BNP have gained three seats in Epping Forest which isn't too far away from us :-(
