Background

The 7th of May, 2020 UK local elections were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and were set to be held along with the May 6th, 2021 local elections. The poll is most extensive range of local elections in almost 50 years.

Brexit had been largely successfully out side of some major border issues on the Island of Ireland. David Cameron's lobbying for the collapse Australian firm, Greensill Capital, had caused much embarrassment for the government in April. Both the government's and Welsh Assembly's (Senedd Cymru) ineffective handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, the near collapse of Liberty Steel, and both Alex Salmond's alleged misogamy and rising drug and knife crime in London were also major issues.

Liverpool's Labour Mayor, Joe Anderson; the council regeneration director, Nick Kavanagh, and 3 other Labour council members were rested late in 2020 over the "Tarmacadamy Affair." It was a non-existent 1,000 apprenticeship forming job plan on a site later sold 2 other innocents and unsuspecting construction sites for there less job making plants instead. Cronyism, corruption, no record keeping, high handedness, unaccountability and political thuggery were the alleged hallmark of the council clique's rule. UK Government Commissioners (they are not related to Police and Crime Commissioners in any way what so ever) will oversee the remaining councilors' political rehabilitation and the councils legal reforms.

A couple of January polls showed that Labour would be badly damaged by the Conservatives in both polls and also hit by both PC and Lib Dems in a single poll. The Senedd Cymru also faces a new threat from the new party Abolish the Welsh Assembly, who want it shut down for good.

The former SNP leader, Alex Salmond, formed the new the pro-independence Alba Party on March the 26th. The SNP repeated their claims that he was a sex pervert and misogamist. He repeated his clams Nicola Sturgeon was a fanatic and misandryus. His party will only run on the proportional representation list, which will mostly hurt the SNP and Greens. The Labour, Conservatives and LibDem vote would be largely untouched by the Alba Party's actions.

Potholes, broken street lights and housing were big issues in Oxfordshire as a whole, while both drivers driving through pedestrianiszed zones and motorist speeding up residential streets in Oxford had become an issue in Oxford and Kidlington.

Scandals during the run-up to the election

Dominic Cummings allegations on 24\04\2021

The PM's former Spin doctor and personal aid, Dominic Cummings, betrayed him and reveled:

  • The PM, Boris Johnston, asked a party donor to pay for refurbishing the Number 10 Downing Street Press room.
  • The PM asked a party donor to pay for the £200,000 refurbishing his official London flat. This one was later proven to be in fact false since the PM had payed for it.
  • The civil servant who leaked the plans for a 2nd UK Covid-19 lockdown was not disciplined since he was a close friend of the PM's girlfriends.
  • The PM opposed a second Covid-19 lockdown, but gave in to medical and civil service advice in the end.

Both the SNP and Labour call for an enquiry in to government sleazed and cronyism.

Dominic Cummings allegations on 25\04\2021

The pro-Brexit billionaire business man-come-fat cat, James Dyson of cyclone vacuum and failed ventilator fame, has returned home from tax Singapore in exchange for favorable tax breaks on his firm, his employees and him self.

The events of 28\04\2021

UK local, mayoral and devolved elections

The UK's Electoral Commission lunched a formal investigation into how PM's flat was refurbished and weather a party donor was asking political favours in exchange for the initial loan that the PM turned down on Dominic Cumming's advice. The PM then offered it again later on and apparently recidivated, regardless of favours asked or not, until the press picked up the story and then payed for it himself to avoid a sandal.

Thérèse Coffey said there was a state budget of £30,000 a year for such work and Michael Gove said it better payed for than out of taxpayers' money.

The officials in charge of the refurbishment approached the ex-Labour chancellor, Alistair Darling, to sit on a financial trust body to oversee and control the costs of the renovation.

N. Ireland

The DUP leader, Arleen Foster, faces a leadership challenge plot in the DUP. The DUP want a pro-hard Brexit zealot to take over. The British PM did lie about the border in the Irish Sea and keeping N. Ireland in the EU's common market was a betrayal, but not a mortal blow to the UK's control over the province. The banning gay conversion therapy is a modern trend and not explicitly European in origin.

The Loyalist dream of sealing off or vassalising Ireland was not a practical plan and the PM got the best deal he could do at the time.

The customs union and Common external tariff dose not and will as yet not go far as a currency union. Such unions don't destroy nations as a rule.

Silverdale landfill tip on 29\04\2021

The much hated Silverdale landfill tip at the former Walleys Quarry site, near Newcastel-under-Lyme was condemned by local authorities for stinking out Silverdale town several months. The owners, Red Industries, promised to cap it off and reduce the stink of rotten eggs in the near future.

The Environment Agency has is going to add a new (the 4th) air quality monitoring station near the dump site and recently shared data from other 3 stations with Public Health England over smell's possible impact on local health.

Aftermath

General

The Tory's possible proxy or just ally, Nigel Farage no longer has Brexit to crow on about and a wide spread electoral pact, his collapsed, with voters going to the Conservatives. The places the government had focused regional aid were mostly under a Conservative council and\or Metro Mayor\Combined Authority leader, so meaning voting for the opposition would be harmful to there future. The Labour sleaze allegations actually helped the Conservatives to win since the voters have over recent years got to like sleaze by any leading politician. The Greens and Lib Dems picked up in hand full of places to. Boris Johnston is personally popular on the mostly false belief that the Covid-19 pandemic and mostly true belief Brexit were success because of him.

Scottish

The SNP call for a Scottish vote on independence in 2023 in the hope that Covid-19 had gone away by then, but the UK government say there will never be one ever again and that they will use force to keep it in the union if all else fails. There are calls to scrap the Scottish Assembly and the growing view that the 2014 vote to stay in the union made Scotland a de facto province of England, not a de jure union member of the UK.

The Labour party

Sir Keir Starmer says he will take responsivity for his party's failure. Angela Rayner is removed as Labour Party chair, but is promised a new post in the near future, which he did. The shadow cabinet is reshuffled. Many Labour voters and party members thought Sir Keir Starmer was a looser and some voters even thought he was a Conservatives Party puppet. May in the UK TV media say the only factor in the by-election was Brexit, but it was not.
