Tories Take Hammering

The Conservative and Liberal Democrats took a hammering at the local elections as both parties lost out on a considerate number of seats.

Across the country the Tories lost out on seats along with losing control of eight authorities. The Labour party, however, gained 114 seats. However, it was the United Kingdom Independence Party that had the biggest gain by taking 89 seats.

 

UKIP leader, Nigeal Farage, described it as a historical day. He said, “There are areas of the country where now ere have got an imprint in local government. Under the first-pass-the-post system we are serious players.”
