CathedralsTom Thanks to @cathedralsdavid for a well fought campaign. He's worked hard and done well (especially considering national Lib Dem implosion).

@1queer1 But that might just be wishful thinking

via Twitter for Mac in reply to 1queer1

@1queer1 There's a general buzz that suggests something will happen soon

via Twitter for Mac in reply to 1queer1

@1queer1 no, genuine comment. The council events team have been involved this time.

via Twitter for iPad in reply to 1queer1

UKIP look to have split the Tory vote in Riverside ward, meaning the Lib Dems are likely to hold on there.

via Twitter for iPad

We haven't had any results yet, but on the face of it this is the best organised, most slick count I've ever seen.

via Twitter for Mac

Amazing how many people vote for one Labour, one Lib Dem and one Tory in the local elections

Bad news for Nick Clegg if his special advisor Matthew Hanney fails to get elected in Bishop's Ward (Waterloo)

via Twitter for Mac

Recount in Bishop's ward, Waterloo (Lambeth) - very tight result.

via Twitter for Mac

Some long-serving and hard-working councillors are likely to lose their seats today.

via Twitter for Mac

Our man in Lambeth says Bishop's ward could be split - maybe two Labour councillors and one Lib Dem. Awaiting possible recount.

via Twitter for Mac

@camberwellblog It was always going to be. General election last time distorted the usual patterns.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to camberwellblog

@sam_parham Several split wards likely. Southwark Lib Dems could lose more than half their councillors across the borough.

Looks like Southwark Labour will have a very good day, winning a number of council seats in Simon Hughes' constituency

In wards with one or two UKIP candidates a lot of voters split their three council votes between parties
