LOCAL ELECTION: Surrey and Hampshire results

LOCAL ELECTION: Surrey and Hampshire results

Of the 14 seats available, 6 have gone to the Liberal Democrats, 5 to Conservatives and 3 to Independent parties.

The difference in Cornwall is that in local elections Labour has always been a minority party at County Hall and has never had control of the council. Uncertainty also persists over the direction of Brexit.

Barnet councillor Barry Rawlings said Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and the NEC were responsible for the inactive response of the party against Ken Livingstone's anti-Semitic comments in 2016. Joining Sophy will be former Cabinet minister Justine Greening, Conservative Party chairman Brandon Lewis and Labour Party chairman Ian Lavery.

There were bright spots for Labour - including its best performance in London since 1971 and victories in Kirklees and Plymouth - but the party failed to match pre-poll expectations of widespread gains.

With only one council left to declare a result, Labour has failed to take target councils in London, while the Conservatives have lost control of two councils overall.

"Think of the Black Death in the Middle Ages". I told him, come down to Redbridge, we're going to win big.

"Our time isn't finished because Brexit is being betrayed".

It was far from a guarantee, but one of the names that consistently surfaced was Iowa Hawkeyes defensive back Joshua Jackson. Alexander was going to fall - potentially even into the 20s - due to his injury-plagued junior season at Louisville .


Fears of a hard set of results for the Tories proved unfounded, as they managed to hold on to a number of London councils and make gains in Brexit-supporting areas of the North and Midlands, suffering a net loss of 30 seats.

Its failure to take Barnet, a northern suburb with a large Jewish population that was Labour's top target in the capital, is likely to be more heavily scrutinised in the context of an ongoing row over anti-Semitism in the party.

"We've achieved a lot but we've got a lot more to achieve and I will be working with Islington Labour to make the borough the best it possibly can be".

Controversially, it took control of Pendle council in Lancashire by just a single seat after it reinstated a Tory councillor who had been suspended by party officials for making a racist "joke" on Facebook.

The result did mean the British National Party lost its last remaining council seat in England. Those odds, like the results, indicate that anything is far from certain and everything is still to play for between now and the next general election. It is the first test of the government since the June general election a year ago, when the Conservatives lost majority and are forced to rely on the support of allies in Northern Ireland, the DUP.

Mr Langleben said: "It is down to Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour leadership to prove to Labour Jews like me and also the wider Jewish community that they take this seriously".
