Theresa May 'not taking anything for granted' after Labour's local election rout

"That's the acid test, that's what he has to demonstrate, not just to hundreds of supporters at rallies in safe Labour territory, we have to win Stevenage, we have to win the Milton Keynes seats, we have to win those seats we have to if we are going to be a party of government and we are a party of government, that's what we were created for so he has to, he has to prove that", Johnson said on Sky's Sophy Ridge on Sunday.

As expected The Conservatives have made gains while nearly all the other parties have lost ground.

By calling an early national election for next month, May has made the local votes a gauge of her leadership, and many Conservative candidates have campaigned in recent days using her campaign mantra of "strong and stable leadership".

UKIP lost nearly all council seats the party had previously held.

Party leaders will return to the campaign trail amid opposition fears of a Conservative landslide after the Tories made sweeping gains in the local elections.

The remaining two seats went to candidates for Stratford First and Whitnash Residents Association.

After polls closed, Corbyn's team played down expectations of their party's performance, accepting that Labour could be set to lose hundreds of council seats.

Sinclair Absorbs Tribune Media In $3.9B Deal
Sinclair will pay roughly $43.50 per share for Tribune Media and assume about $2.7 billion in net debt from the deal. The company fired Leiberman the day after his interview, saying he was a disgruntled employee.

"These elections are a challenging set of contests held in unique circumstances", a Labour spokesman said.

The council election results arguably were not as bad for Tim Farron's party as they looked.

Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson declared only her party could lead the "fightback against the SNP", in an attempt to present the Conservatives - not Labour - as the opposition to the nationalist SNP party, which now dominates politics in Scotland.

Labour lost seats evenly across England, Scotland and Wales.

Ballots were counted Friday from contests for local councils in Scotland, Wales and many parts of England, as well as from mayoral competitions in several cities.

The turnout was 36 per cent of the electorate.

Redcar Labour MP Anna Turley said on Twitter: "We have a lot to learn from this Tees Valley result".

Adam Drummond, Head of Political Polling at Opinium, said the strains of the campaign spotlight have had some impact on the public perception of May, with those who voted to remain in the European Union in last year's referendum in particular feeling less convinced by her message than at the start of the campaign.

A practically funereal PM toured a Brentford factory to try to argue that the results meant nothing as regards the General Election.

But he also admitted Labour needs to be more effective at cutting through the press in the build up to the general election.

Coming off the back of a strong performance in the local elections, the Conservatives are 16 points ahead of Labour, according to the latest opinion poll from Opinium.

Ben Houchen, the victorious Conservative candidate, said: "We have seen a political natural disaster that's happening right here for the Conservatives across the North East".

'It is interesting over the last week, there has been a rush of young people registering to vote. They chose to fight the election on the issue of an independence referendum, they talked about nothing else, they didn't have any policies for local government.

Mrs May has made the forthcoming Brexit negotiations a key election battleground, arguing she would be better able to get a good deal for the United Kingdom than Mr Corbyn.

Tories 'extremely foolish' over election boasts, says Alex Salmond
Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson has challenged her party to redouble efforts over the next month. Therefore, although the Labour Party is down I don't think it is yet out.

"So today, I will continue my efforts to earn the support of you, the people".
