Live-Tweeting The Local Election Results

Local Council Election Results Live Tweet SPS

Real time, Semi-Partisan tweets and analysis of the incoming local council election results are accessible here.

The first results are only just coming in, but from those early towns and cities to declare, there is undeniable evidence of a strong UKIP result, with large jumps in their percentage of the vote and some early seat wins on local councils.

The UKIP surge is coming at the expense of all of the other political parties so far, with both Labour and Conservative leads significantly dented in a number of wards.

The political establishment are clearly spooked – Labour’s Chuka Umunna is hard at work on the BBC News Channel continuing the anti-UKIP smears and offering glib and oily platitudes in defence of the political establishment, while Tory MP Douglas Carswell is already appealing to UKIP to agree to a pact with the Conservatives for the 2015 general election.

It is shaping up to be a long, eventful day – and a potentially awkward one for everyone other than Nigel Farage.
