    We received all the blurb from the Lib-Dems yesterday ... it's full of crap and the female candidate mentions her wife

    I've noticed that the actual candidates don't knock on people's doors any more.

    Their canvassers just shove the leaflet through the letterbox and then disappear.

    I'm sure there's a good reason for this

    Local elections: Tories and Labour hit by Brexit backlash in polls

    The Conservatives and Labour have faced a backlash at the ballot box over the Brexit deadlock, with smaller parties and independents winning seats.

    With local council results continuing to come in for England and Northern Ireland, national politics seems to have been a deciding factor for voters.

    The Tories have lost 450 seats and 19 English councils so far, many of them to a resurgent Liberal Democrats.

    Labour has also had a disappointing night, losing about 80 seats to date.

    Speaking in Greater Manchester, leader Jeremy Corbyn said he "wanted to do better" and conceded voters who disagreed with its backing for Brexit had deserted the party.

    But Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable said it had been a "brilliant" result for his party and "every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote for stopping Brexit".

    Conservatives lose more than 1,300 councillors

    A complete wipe-out for the Tories - May now has to go, surely?
