The Liberal Democrats wiped out the Conservatives in the local elections to Cheltenham Borough Council. There is no blue in the political make-up of the local authority after votes were counted on Friday (May 3) after voters delivered their verdict at polling booths on Thursday.

The Lib Dems went into the elections with 31 councillors and the Tories had five seats. After all votes were counted, the Lib Dems had extended their dominance to 36 seats while the Tories were left with none.

Before the final results came in, former Lib Dem councillor and would-be MP Max Wilkinson said on X, formerly twitter: "It’s been a fantastic set of results for Cheltenham. Lib Dems appear to be on the cusp of wiping out the Conservatives. One set of results is left. Charlton Kings… It would be extraordinary."

That result came in with two more Lib Dems elected. As a party, the Lib Dems grabbed a huge 52% share of the vote.

Of course, Cheltenham has a Conservative MP, Cabinet Minister Alex Chalk, the Justice Secretary. He had had a majority of just 981 at the last general election.

Voters are switching to the Liberal Democrats because they “have had enough of being taken for granted and being let down”, party leader Sir Ed Davey said. Speaking in Winchester, Sir Ed said: “The votes are still being counted, but the message from across the country is loud and clear: People from around our great country have had enough of this out of touch Conservative Government.

“They have had enough of being taken for granted and being let down. It is time for change. And across this country, from Cheltenham to Dorset, from West Oxfordshire to here in Winchester, so many people, including lifelong Conservatives are switching to the Liberal Democrats to make that change happen.

“So they can have real champions who are going to work tirelessly for the local community and deliver the fair deal that people so deserve.”
