The European Elections 2014

Local Elections 2014 – Results

This year local elections have been held for:-

  • all seats in the London Boroughs
  • a third of the seats in the English Metropolitan Boroughs
  • all the seats in Milton Keynes, Hart and Three Rivers following boundary changes
  • a third, and in a few a half, of the seats in a number of English district councils
  • 5 mayoral elections with Watford, which the Lib Dems are defending, the most interesting for assessing prospects in the general election.
