Where's your vote going? Will it be someone dripping with self interest and corruption in a blue rosette or someone dripping with self interest and corruption in a red rosette.

We don't have elections here sadly.

Hopefully this is a blood bath for the Tory's.

Tower Hamlets has declared already.

Labour have held the seats with 3.1 million votes and a turnout of 157%.

I've not lived in Bolton for nearly 12 years so not really in the know what's been going on locally, but i do know a lot of people were extremely fed up of the current council. May be worse now with no one in overall control though?

It was an appalling night for them. They should have been picking up 300/400 seats nationally and instead they're about 85 down so far.
I think the Corbyn effect is more pervasive then pundits imagined.

It's good that the smaller parties are picking up votes. The big bloated parties funded by dodgy millionaires and self interested union bosses represent no one.

The gains by LDs are nothing more than the result of protest votes. Its a free chance to show the polticians that everyone is pissed off with them. 
The next opportunity will be the European elections, when the Brexit Party makes strong gains. 
Once the general Election comes along, things will take a more serious turn. The only problem is that most of the muppets who have already cocked up Brexit, will continue to stand.

Good to see the Greens make gains. Looks as if Labour need to take a definitive stance on brexit now- soft, minimal damage Brexit would be my position.

Unbelievably bad night for the Tories though, May has managed to alienate most of the country by the look of it.

Interesting that the parties that did best yesterday (admittedly only in local elections) were the ones that favour remaining in the EU.

Yes, it is a pity Corbyn is too pig headed to realise this.

If it comes down to no deal, or hard Brexit Labour will back a second referendum. There’s still a way to respect the vote and limit the damage to the economy though - that should be given every chance.

And what about no brexit which apparently at least 55% of the population currently want?

Hardly a surprise when every party standing favours staying in the EU.

Merely pointing out that a second referendum where the choice is no deal or a crap deal is not a real choice as it ignores the option of no brexit.

Offering people the choice of being punched in the face once or twice is not much of a choice unless they can also choose not to be punched in the face instead.
