Last week saw 3 Labour gains, 2 from Con, 1 from LD in council by-elections.
Last night saw a continuation of the same trend:
Nuneaton and Bedworth, Abbey Ward - Labour gain from LDs, removing the final LD seat from the council
Birmingham, Brandwood Ward - Labour gain from Tories with a 300 majority (Tom Watson is quoting this as a 6.6% swing)
Worcester, St Clements Ward - Tory seat with 470 majority gained by Labour with 126 majority, Tories lose overall control of council
Pembrokeshire CC, Pembroke St Michaels Ward - result awaited
Wigan MBA, Wigan West Ward - result awaited
Copeland BC, Harbour Ward - Labour hold
Southend On Sea UA, Shoeburyness Ward - Independent gain from Tory
so the scores on the doors so far are:
Labour - 3 gains, 2 from Con, 1 from LD, and 1 hold, all in relatively marginal areas
Tories - 3 losses, 2 to Lab, 1 to Ind, no holds
Any bets on an October election?
