Negotiations on a Brexitöverenskommelse is going on now between the Theresa Mays of the government and Labourledningen – and it is not impossible that the discussions can get a last push over the finish line of the results in Thursday's local elections.
the Results fell in slowly on Friday, but it was quite clear that, above all, the Tories, though even the Labour party, been severely punished by the voters.
With the results reported from the 190 of 248 English municipalities, saw the Tories out losing power in at least 35 municipalities, while Labour lose power for at least four.
and traditional väljarbeteenden makes maktinnehav rarely shifts locally, but anyone who looks carefully at the numbers see that something big is about to happen.
the Tories were at 17 o'clock on Friday lost more than 800 seats in the municipal council, and in total it looked to be more than a thousand lost seats compared to the elections in 2015.
The big winners are the liberal democrats and The greens. This may at first glance give the impression that a EU-friendly wave washes over the Uk – not the least of which, the EU-critical and very xenophobic Ukip at the same time slopes.
But according to the political scientist John Curtice is The success more a matter of proteströster against the two major parties, the inertia around the Brexit.
is more remarkable – the party is estimated to have received around 11 per cent of the votes, just a couple of weeks after the much-debated klimatdemonstrationerna in London. The who believed that civil disobedience would punish at the ballot box seem to have been wrong.
That Ukip decrease was expected, as its former years Nigel Farage left the party and instead formed a new missnöjesparti: Brexitpartiet. In the polls for the EUROPEAN elections at the end of may, this new Brexitparti right now close to 30 per cent – would actually be able to become the largest political force in the united kingdom, if it were in the EU elections today.
As well, for the established parties put Brexitpartiet not up in the local elections, and the new Change UK, which are formed by the EU-friendly defectors from Labour and the Tories.

It is hard word.
admitted on Friday that the situation is serious, and that the voters have shown they want a solution to Brexitknuten.
the only Question is how the Tories and the Labour party partiledningar react, more concrete. The rational would be able to seem to more urgently seek a compromise on the Brexit, perhaps based on an aim to a future customs union with the EU – something which seems to be within reach.
despite the fact that the established parties are faced with something of a disaster if the three weeks, it is not obvious that what seems rational to an outsider, is seen as rational by the warring factions within the two parties.
of all just want to force Theresa May – and who is prepared to take a defeat in the EU elections in order to achieve this. Therefore, there is no guarantee that the prime minister can mobilize enough support in his group for an agreement with the Labour party.
In the Labour party, on the other hand, there is a röststark faction who instead want to stop Brexit. The say that the results in the local elections should be seen as a demand for a second referendum on the EU exit.
