UPDATE: Apparently, I misread the results. The Conservatives now control 157 of 279 local councils, and have over twice as many locally elected councilors as Labour.
As my fellow AngloSpheric fan, an Australian friend of mine, had pointed out to me, local councils are, in the absence of anything like states, the training ground for up-and-comers. Much like the Republicans with their state legislators here, the Tories now have a far more substantial farm system than Labour.
Also, the Lib-Dems weren’t the only ones who backed AV. Perhaps surprisingly, Labour did as well. That, along with the fact that the Scottish Parliament now has an SNP majority at the expense of Labour, has got to be embarrassing.
