Local election results - great for Labour

As Bristol City Council's map shows, after a long day of counting, Labour boosted our numbers at the Council easily taking overall control. Results are:

Labour 37

Tories 14

Greens 11

LibDems 8

This is great news for communities across the city, and in Bristol South where Labour gained a seat from the Green Party in Windmill Hill and where we now have a strong team of councillors overall to work with our hard-working Labour M.P Karin Smyth, and with new Labour Mayor Marvin Rees. together the will drive forward our Plan to improve transport, access to decent housing, jobs and education, and environmental improvement. Go Labour!

This is great news, but I am disappointed that Bishopsworth Ward is still in Tory hands, surely it’s time to get this ward back, Dr Paul Walker was the last Labour Councillor, around 2000 time, now it should be pinpointed for a retrieval in 5 years time, Its looks like the odd one out shaded Blue on a map that is now mainly red.
