Labour’s hold of Enfield and Haringey and gain of Brent and Harrow London Assembly seats are striking results at a time of Labour defeats in so many other places. On the list, the election of a BNP member is the main piece of news.
Overall, the Liberal Democrats lost two Assembly seats, with Mike Tuffrey, Dee Doocey and Caroline Pidgeon the three elected.
Looking to the general election, the The Guardian has an analysis of how Labour performed in some of the key marginal Westminster constituencies, showing that the Liberal Democrats (and Conservatives) did very well in many of them.
This seems to reinforce the pattern from last year, which is of our party doing increasingly well in the areas that really matter for the next general election.
