January 2, 2015 Leave a comment
There were forty-two local authority by-elections in the final two months of last year, of which thirteen resulted in seats changing hands.

Nationalists parties certainly appear to be the flavour of the month(s) with UKIP, SNP and PC making six gains between them. The minus five number against Labour is worrying; there were actually six losses (offset by one gain) – two to the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, and sole gains for the SNP and an independent.
Otherwise it is a story of no real change.
