Barnet Tory Don't Call Me Dave sportingly lists all the councils that have changed on his blog:
In neighbouring Enfield, Labour won 9 seats to take control from the Conservatives. In Harrow, Labour added 10 seats to oust the Tories. Labour also won control of nearby Brent, Camden and Ealing.Frankly, looking at this list, I'm starting to feel cheated! Why, especially given the particularly arrogant attitude of Barnet's Tory administration, did our Labour group only manage to hold its own on Thursday and not sweep all before them?
I did think, when I read it, that Labour group leader Alison Moore's comment to the Times series reporter was strange:
“This is a dismal result for the Barnet Conservatives, and their leader Lynne Hillan, who talked of 'turning Barnet blue' in this election.In fact, the Labour group went from 20 councillors to 21. So, why did Barnet's Labour group not do better? It's certainly something to ponder - and rue.
“I am delighted that we have kept all our hard working Labour councillors and increased the size of the Labour Group as well.”
