Unashamed triumphalism - black day for Labour
WARNING - THIS ARTICLE SHOULD NOT BE READ IF YOU DO NOT LIKE THE LABOUR PARTY.
I am still coming down from the results on Friday. I have rarely experienced a political event like Friday's count and I will probably never experience one like it again in my lifetime.
The Labour Party won 10 seats and now holds 51 out of the 75 seats on the Council. We actually won in 23 out of the 24 seats up for election.
Added to these fantastic results Labour is now again in control of St Helens and Liverpool.
According to some sections of the press Thursday was a dark day for Labour.
Not here it wasn't.
