Below is the result of the local election in Birkdale with links to other wards in Southport and beyond. It was a very good night with one gain from the Tories. To read the national press you would believe that the Tories had a good night in the north. In truth the picture was very patchy. Our friends in Mghull also did well and on first analysis appear to have gained a swing against the Tories.
There is no Cameron effect in Southport!
