Now, bias openly admitted here ... I'm a Labour politician who supports PR (bizarre I know) ... but I've just added up the Party affiliation of Council Leaders in the 32 Local Authorities in Scotland following the 3rd May elections and subsequent endless negotiations, which do appear to have nearly all been settled now.
Indeed, all but 1 Local Authority (Stirling ... details here) is now working in blissful harmony ;-)
... and the results are:
Labour - 11*
Independent - 8
SNP - 6
Lib-Dem - 4**
Tory - 2
* - looks like Stirling may make it 12 eventually
** - what can I say, one-quarter Edinburgh's fault ;-((
Just a reminder that Labour only had control of 13 Councils before May 3rd.
Now I know that the SNP have most "Councillors" in Scotland, but the political affiliation of the Council Leader does pretty much correlate to the make-up of the largest political Group on 'each' Council.
Interesting ... and, as far as I know, completely ignored in the media?
