CONDEMS blown away as Labour retake Derbyshire

Ed Miliband taking questions

Super SaturdayLabour’s campaign to wrestle back control of Derbyshire County Council from the Conservatives ended in joy as 20 seats across Derbyshire were gained in a huge victory for Labour.

In Chesterfield the victory was even more stunning with Labour winning eight of the nine seats up for grabs, and falling just 117 votes short of a clean sweep.

Labour leader Ed Miliband who had visited Chesterfield in the run up to the election, was back in Derbyshire the day after the poll, joining supporters in Ilkeston for a victory rally.

Ed Miliband said: “We are on the road to a ‘one nation’ Labour General election victory” he also praised Derbyshire Labour leader Anne Western saying : “In Anne Western, Derbyshire has a leader that is on your side and will work with you.”

Labour MP Toby Perkins said: “To win eight out of nine seats was a stunning victory, more than we dared dream of. But the other significant change was the rise of the other parties, the Lib Dems who in recent years have been a main party in Chesterfield were only in the first two in four out of 11 seats here. UKIP, Conservatives and Independents all came in the first two in some seats. It appears the days of two party politics are over here, and voters are going to have more choice in future. So whilst we will enjoy our victory today, tomorrow we will be back to work, in Chesterfield and in Derbyshire to make sure we are worthy of the continued support of our electorate.”
