Camden returns to Labour control

6a00d8345162e169e20133ed5fa20d970b-120wi Results in Camden Council have mirrored those in Islington, it's Labour all over in King's Cross and beyond. In King's Cross ward Abdul Hai and Jonathan Simpson have retained their seats, and Sarah Hayward is the new Labour kid on the block.

The Lib Dem-Tory administration lasted one term.

South of the Borough is a reinforced Labour stronghold, with the lone blue dot in Bloomsbury now in red.

Here's a game of counting coloured pins on the map:

Labour 30
Lib Dem 10
Conservative 10
Green 1

A bad result indeed for the Lib Dems, with a loss of 14 seats, the Conservatives 2. The three missing seats are those of Haverstock ward, which will have a by-election on May 25.

Are we all electioned-out now, sick of numbers and swingometers and ready for some rest over the weekend? Brave new world on Monday. Or not.
