Whiston Town Council Delph Ward – 18th August 2016
Labour 159 [36.1%]
Lib Dem – Paul Shaw 157 [35.6%]
Lab Majority: 2
Wow this was close with a number of recounts I hear. This was solid Labour territory but no longer.
Reminds me of the Maghull Town Council North Ward by-election in February of this year. My previous blog posting refers:-
Labour then lost the following Maghull Sudell Ward election in May to an Independent and you know what it was on the same major issue – A Labour-run Council (in this latest case Knowsley Borough) sanctioning building on the Green Belt!
