2016 Walsall local election results

It’s late, I’m knackered – but a big night for Labour in Walsall: Steve Wade held Brownhills by a fairly sizeable majority; Keith Sears held Walsall Wood and a shock result for Blakenall where Labour’s Matt Ward beat Pete Smith.

It looks like Labour may take control this time; but still no overall control. Some things in Walsall politics are intractable.

Congratulations to the winners, commiserations to the losers; but it’s hard not to smile at Pete Smith having to hail a taxi.

You can find full results over at Walsall Council’s Election site.
