Interesting detail of the collapse of the BNP vote in Barking and Dagenham. If they are getting such a derisory showing in this borough it indicates that the era of democratically elected neo-Nazis in our council chambers does seem to be drawing to a close.

There were also lots of Council byelections last week (118 so rather too many to list) alongside the main council elections. The Conservatives made net losses of nine. We held 48 of the 64 seats we were defending. However we gained five seats from the Lib Dems and two from Labour (in Wellingborough and Wycombe.) The 16 losses were mostly to UKIP and to independents.
