Greens are largest party in Brighton

The Greens have gained ten seats in Brighton and Hove to become the largest party on the Council with 23 seats. Labour held its 13 seats whilst the Lib Dems lost its only seat. The Tories, who were only three short of a majority prior to the election, lost eight leaving them on 18. Caroline Lucas will be delighted with the result since it represents a significant consolidation of her position as one of the authority’s MPs. The Greens also recorded English council gains in Norwich and a number of other places.

    I’m awaiting the post on the AV result. A bit surprised by the reaction of the likes of Compass who seem to think that a yes vote would have sidelined the Tories forever. Why the assumption that AV would sideline the Tories? What have we got now? The Lib Dems supporting the Tories. If AV went through there could easily have been a pact between the Tories and Lib Dems at the next election.
