England Local Elections

The May 2nd local elections in England were another set of lections that caught me by surprise, and once again in a good way. Based on the BBC’s website (https://www.bbc.com/news/topics/ceeqy0e9894t/england-local-elections-2019), the Liberal Democrats gained 706 seats and the Greens gained 194. This is a positive development, as the two major parties in the United Kingdom, the Conservative Party and the Labour Party, have serious problems. The Conservative Party is experience internal chaos because of Brexit, and Theresa May’s handling of this situation has been incompetent. While I generally disagree with policies of the Conservatives, I mostly like the ideas coming Jeremy Corbyn and Labour. However, Corbyn’s inability to control the disturbing rise of anti-Semitism within the party has severely undermined my faith in them. Ultimately, while I may be more ideologically aligned with Labour, ultimately, I view the Liberal Democrats as the potential salvation of the United Kingdom.
