Manchester opts for Labour

We're still waiting for the regional result for the North West but we have just had the results from Manchester which are interesting.

Labour finished first, second were the Liberal Democrats, third Greens and the Brexit Party fourth.

I'm not sure that will reflect the results across the North West.

As you look around the tables, the looks from the faces of candidates and party activists can tell you a lot.

There are some pretty glum faces on the Labour and Tory tables, the Brexit Party are looking very happy as are the Lib Dems, and the Green Party as well seem pretty upbeat.

As for Tommy Robinson (pictured above), the former leader of the English Defence League who is standing here as an independent, he seems to suggest he is not overly confident. In Manchester he got about 2,000 votes, just for comparison Labour got more than 40,000.
