There is a big and obvious thing that happened in #LocalElections2019 - a surge of support for #remain parties - and it is real.But there is a smaller thing creating a more confusing picture. A theory .... 1/n (picture source @guardian ) #Brexit
The smaller thing is that Labour is doing better in areas that are remain and worse in its strong areas that are #leave. This is a paradox as you would expect the opposite if this was driven by a #RemainBacklash.
And the Tories are the opposite. They are being punished in their areas that are remain. Is this just a plague on both your houses and reveal nothing about voters and #brexit? I don't believe so. And here's my theory.

Leavers: don’t read anything into big gains for Remain parties, people vote on local issues.

Also Leavers: big gains for independents show voters want politicians to get on with delivering Brexit.

🤔

#RemainBacklash
Remain parties have gained 627; Leave parties have lost 1006. Even if every independent candidate were pro-Brexit (not the case), you’re still looking at a huge swing to Remain parties. There’s no hiding from this.
I would love, LOVE it if every voter in local elections voted on purely local issues. But how naive would you have to be to really believe this to be the case? This is an emphatic rejection of blukip & redkip on a national scale.

Been holding off on posting this #Thread regarding the #LocalElection2019 going on in England and Northern Ireland, but the results are fascinating to me here in Scotland for sure. There is a clear #RemainBacklash going on and this is HUGE, shall go into more detail on why.
Clearly, the #LocalElections2019 is one of the biggest elections in history for the Lib Dems and the biggest night for the Green Party, there is been a massive shift towards these two parties over the usual Tories and Labour, but why is that? Clearly, #Brexit is a big part of why
How the Tories and Labour have handled #Brexit is nothing short of embarrassing, both these parties have refused to support a #PeoplesVote and give us a second say on leaving the EU. Yet Lib Dems and Green Party have been consistent since the get-go as remain parties.
