Tory chair Greg Hands faced the media and tried to defend his party as they slumped in local elections voting last night.
He claims they have been ‘disappointing’ – but claims it’s ‘not that great’ for Labour in some places.
Hands told GB News: “We always said it would be a difficult night for the party, the independent projections were all that we were going to lose 1,000 seats.
“It’s still early days so far but if I might say, it’s not been that great a result for Labour in some areas.
“We’ve actually gained seats in Peterborough, Sandwell, Bassetlaw, other areas that Labour need to win at the next election.
Local elections – Projections
