UK Local Elections: All Politics is Brexit

In a possible dress rehearsal for European elections later this month, British voters took out their frustrations on the two major parties in local elections on Thursday.  Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservatives got the worst of it, losing some 1,300 city councilors, and more than 40 councils, compared to their 2015 figures.  Labour fared no better, dropping about 80 councilors, and losing control of a half-dozen city councils.  For good measure, even pro-Brexit UKIP, big winners four years ago, lost almost all their seats Thursday night.
