NEW: what we learned from the local elections
• Tories suffer worst defeat in 24 years
• Lib Dems’ best for 30+ years
• Clear Remain/Leave gradient to Conservative and Labour performances. Tories hammered in Remain areas, Labour stung in Leave areas https://t.co/kWS0Ns73oh pic.twitter.com/vn3ReFPdUm

+888 for Remain parties
-1471 for Leave parties
-81 for Labour (no idea what their position is)
+662 for Independents
So, why is the main story from the local elections that Brexit needs to be delivered ASAP? pic.twitter.com/rL4h0BGygb

Retweeting my March piece in light of this morning’s call between Trump & Putin. Trump may be ready to move on but Russia launched a cyber attack on our 2016 election & will be back on 2020. American greatness depends upon the integrity of our elections. https://t.co/OBMj1j4tMT
