Massive gain for greens in Birkenhead & Tranmere.

Green gain in Prenton.

Conservative gain in Pensby & Thingwall (must be the land of BDSM)

Libdem gain in Oxton (back to where it was traditionally).

Labour gain in Rock Ferry (only because previous Labour Councillor did the dirty).

I think all the rest were holds.

It is rather pathetic that only 34% actually voted, local elections are notoriously poor in that respect and yet have massive impacts on our day to day lives.

The deputy chair of the Conservative party on the news this morning, their losses are all the fault of not delivering on Brexit,then goes on to say the Labour party should help us in the talks to secure a deal to leave, they must really be desperate, even they have trouble separating local and general elections, I thought I was voting to see who would best represent my interests locally, silly me.

Local elections are usually in the middle of a political term, so they're generally used to send a message to the party in power.

Not by me though, I always vote for who does best locally, and that's the Lib Dems.

Iv'e been monitoring comments on the local media sites and it becomes clear a lot of people mainly the young have very little understanding of the difference, and can't understand that measures taken by Westminster affect local government spending on local issues, or the usual I'am not voting because they are all the same, which does have a ring of truth to it, but things will only change through the vote.

Or are they just better at communicating what they have done?

I've phoned many Councillors over the years, the most responsive have been Conservative Councillors BUT it has also come apparent that in general the public contact Conservative Councillors much less often than the other main parties, a number of them have been quite excited by someone contacting them.

A number of people use their Councillor as the first point of contact which is wrong, Councillors are NOT the executive, the relevant department should be contacted first eg asb-team, police, one-stop-shop etc.

Probably got a lot to do with the 'green belt' issue in the area, and quite rightly so .

But that is driven by National Government and developers, not local Council.

Government set the quota, councils have to set out plan to meet that quota, if a developer has land but states they are not building houses on that land within the timescale then that land cannot be included in the council plan. Every Council has the same problem.
