After big election losses, the United Kingdom government is on the rocks

Chris Grayling

Labour's total also increased - from three to seven - but the Lib Dems will have no representatives on the council at all, despite putting up 15 candidates.

The party is also losing support over the issue of anti-Semitism, which flared again this week when it emerged leader Corbyn had written the foreword to a book containing what the party called "offensive references".

In an astounding night of political drama, Jeremy Corbyn's opposition Labour Party also experienced significant losses, numbering at about 100 seats, while UKIP lost 61.

In Liverpool, Labour lost three seats, but the most surprising event of the evening was when former Deputy Mayor Ann O'Byrne tabled a motion at the Labour AGM to scrap the role of City Mayor, the position now held by Joe Anderson. We have kept the confidence of the city, given the national protest vote.

The 71-year-old said: 'I am furious at what she has done to our party'.

Theo said: "All the greatest hits, delivering on the will of the British people, everything just over and over again". "I did what I did because I know it was the right thing to do". "Clearly, the unitary authority question is an issue with the Lib Dems and we'll have that conversation in the coming days". She added: 'There was a simple message to both us and the Labour Party - just get on and deliver Brexit'.

Asked whether voters in the 2016 referendum had really given any mandate to the government on a customs union, Hunt said: "In the long run I am not convinced that it is sustainable for an economy of the size of the United Kingdom to have its trade policy decided by a different trade bloc over which it has no influence".

The Yorkshire Party gained three seats in Selby, with the Conservatives dropping from 21 to 16.

"It is disheartening", Mr Brady said.

"However, I am pleased that we have retained control".

SELDEN LABOUR GAIN: Carl Walker 1,098, Conservative Alex Harman 696, Madeleine Weaver 287, Yvonne Leonard Lib Dem 204.

Polling expert Professor Sir John Curtice, of Strathclyde University, said the voters appeared to be punishing whichever of the main two parties was in control in their area.

In contrast, the Liberal Democrats, who fought on a pro-Remain platform, were in buoyant mood.

Former district councillor Andy Denison, 34, wrote "no suitable candidates" across his vote in the Somerset West and Taunton Council elections.

"We are back and not going anywhere", she said.

But Labour strongly opposed the plan, which has now been indefinitely shelved.

Doug Lawson (Green, Penrith Carleton) became the party's first-ever councillor in Eden, with 75 per cent of the vote, and was joined by Ali Ross (Green, Penrith North) shortly after, at the expense of town mayor Scott Jackson (Con). The Green message is clearly taking hold and can win anywhere.
