Election Live: Hard Labour

Live Blog: May 7/5.11am

ARE there any clues developing for what’s in store in Camden in the results in neighbouring boroughs? The Labour vote has been hard as you like in Islington South, Islington North and Westminster North.

* Lib Dem Bridget Fox beaten by Emily Thornberry by 3,000 votes. She must be in tears.

* Karen Buck wins with a 2,000 majority against Joanne Cash, who was meant to be a shoo-in.

* Jeremy Corbyn, never in trouble – but a win of around 12,000 votes.

No wonder people are sniffing a big win for Frank Dobson here at the Camden count. And what about Glenda? Has Labour done the impossible? If they win this, the Lib Dems and Tories will start to worry about who will run the council after the local papers are counted.
