A reminder of how the parties fared at last year's local elections

By Jonathan Isaby

As we follow the local election results that come in on Thursday night and Friday morning, it's worth remembering that the media - and broadcasters in particular - will be comparing the party's national vote shares with the figures from last year's local elections rather than the general election.

And those local election figures last year were:

  • Conservatives - 35%
  • Labour - 27%
  • Lib Dems - 26%

(The general election percentages were 36%, 29% and 23%)
