Crawley MP Henry Smith MP says today’s local election results demonstrate support for the policies and actions of the Conservative council.
He added: “This isn’t a good result for Labour, particularly as many wards were uncontested by the Liberal Democrats or other smaller parties. The Conservative vote has held up and even advanced in some areas. I’m pleased the electorate still recognise Labour bankrupted this nation, have no plan for recovery and all they offer is negativity.”
