8 Lib Dem GAINS in Oxfordshire – including Tory Council Leader’s seat

Lib Dems in Oxfordshire have taken 8 seats from the Conservatives and are now just one seat behind them.

One of the seats was that of the County Council Leader in Woodstock.

To add to Tory miseries, they also lost a seat in affluent Chipping Norton to Labour.

And there could be more..

Good work by the brilliant Oxfordshire team.

    This is terrific news here – achieved after a hell of a lot of hard work – so many names but Cllr Neil Fawcett and Cllr Tim Bearder stand out ! Here in my patch the new Otmoor County Councillor is Cllr Calum Miller ………….

  • Layla Moran has tweeted that this is the biggest group we have *ever* had on Oxfordshire County Council.

    Fantastic set of results. I had a relation living in this County back in the 1970’s the area was totally blue and these results have been achieved by hard graft over the decades.
    All warrant great credit, many names from the past spring to mind including Margaret Godden, but the fact remains folk have stuck with it and a team has been built that WINS elections at every level. I followed these results all afternoon on live feed and it felt almost as if I was at the count.

    Some great local news!
    Thankfully the Council is in a lot better state than in neighbouring Northampton, where contracting out of services totally failed

  • I just love looking at the maps like this. Good tonic after the Cornwall result.
