BBC News - Vote 2011: BNP suffers council seat losses

The British National Party looks set to lose many of the seats it holds on local councils in England.

After 168 council election results, the anti-immigration party had won one seat with a net loss of nine councillors.

The BNP lost all five of its seats in Stoke-on-Trent, where it launched its election campaign in England, and one of its two councillors in Burnley.

The party, which has two MEPs elected in 2009, lost almost half its council seats in last year's local elections.

To be fair to Clegg, that was only from one councillor, the leader of Nottingham libdems, who was upset at losing his seat.

Although he represents an area that I would think would have a strong Lib-Dem tendency.
