UK electoral map

Not a single red area to be seen, anywhere!

Congratulations also go to North Tyneside Conservatives who also managed to get a Tory Mayor elected to go with their Conservative controlled council – Tyneside DOES NOT need to have Labour politicians as some sort of right.

Newcastle and North Tyneside councils have both changed colour in recent years, if the Conservative Party REALLY set their mind to it, similar changes could happen in Gateshead, Sunderland, and South Tyneside.

By any stretch of the imagination Thursday’s county council elections were a massive success fo David Cameron and the Conservative Party, despite the smaller than expected share of the vote, they have won an additional 233 seats so far and Labour has lost 273 seats, four councils have still to declare. Labour has lost every one of the councils it controlled and even the Lib-Dems have lost their strongholds in the south-west. It’s a stunning achievement.
