Clegg-mania fails to take off in Lambeth

The final results for Lambeth Council are now in - and it seems that, like in the rest of the country, there is little enthusiasm for the Liberal Democrats or Conservatives in Lambeth.

Labour on Lambeth Council won 44 seats (an increase of 5), the Liberal Democrats 15 seats (-2) and the Conservatives 4 seats (-2), the sole Green Party Councillor also lost her seat.

Turnout was greatly increased on 2006 and so the results better reflect Lambeth opinion.

Councillor Steve Reed, Labour Leader of Lambeth, welcomed the results saying that he was looking forward to getting back to work on Monday.
