Stop Press ; Nothing Happens In Local Elections, Returning Officer Rumoured To Have Fallen Asleep

After a record amount of disengagement by the parties and candidates in the election campaign, the results reflected this.

That's correct, pretty much nothing happened.

There was a slight bit of fun, as the counters seemed to allocate an extra thousand votes, out the thin air to the conservatives, briefly declaring them the winner of ward, before objections led to the mistake being corrected.

Swindon Centric Says ; The returning officer can go back to sleep now and the very small number of electoral leaflets put in the recycling, at least the environment is safe.
