Conservatives take the Lead

The Conservatives have gained a massive lead in the election as Labour and UKIP fall behind.

With 4,851 seats still available, they have gained control of over 400 seats and 10 councils. They have only lost two seats so far.

Tim Bowles, a candidate of the conservatives, beat Labour’s Lesley Mansell by 51.6% to 48.4%.

Labour have lost control of 275 seats and have assumed control of five councils, losing ground in Lincolnshire, Cumbria and Warwickshire.

UKIP have made a loss of 108 councillors, winning only 1 seat from Labour Lancashire Council.

Liberal Democrats have lost 36 seats, while Plaid Cymru have gained 33 seats in Wales.

On his view of the election, Vlad Stavara, 26 from East Hull stood for labour as they are trying to maintain control, as he said: “I’ve seen how Tories have been in power and they don’t seem to be keeping to their word, which shows a lack of courage.

Labour seems to be trying to keep things as they used to be before Brexit.”

He added: “I wouldn’t like to live in a country where foreign people are frowned upon. I want to see foreign people with the same rights as locals.”

Lisa Bridges, 33, from East Hull is voting for the Conservatives, as she said:

“I thought i was voting for Labour but there’s too much going on wth them, so it looks like i’ll be voting for conservatives.”

When asked the change she would like to see, Mrs Bridges said: “A change for kids. Keep them our of bother, i don’t think they do enough for kids nowadays.”
