This is not correct Howard it is in fact

Lib Dem - 1  Lost Hazel Grove and Stepping Hill Gained Offerton
Con No Change Lost 2 Heatons North and Offerton and Gained Hazel Grove  and Stepping Hill
Labour + 1 Heatons North


Thus
LD 28
Lab 22
Con 10
Heald Green Inds 3

The situation is exactly the same as pre 2012 and it is likely that the two opposition parties will seek the responsibility on control.

I can't help but remind Dave and Simone of their forcaste of a LD defeat in Manor. In fact the majority was 225 up from24.

This leaves Stockport as:

Liberal Democrat 28 (-3)
Labour 22 (+2)
Conservative 10   (+1)
Residents Association 3 (0)

Unless there's a Lab-Con coalition (unlikely) then they'll have to get dealing. At least they're used to it, unlike the national government.

The Marple South result is interesting. I suspect that UKIP pulled in votes from both the Cons and from Labour. Marple South is less affluent than Marple North and if we look around the country, Labour lost some of their core votes to UKIP as well as the more generally accepted point of view that it would be disenchanted Conservative voters who would vote for them. If UKIP hadn't stood in Marple South I suspect that the Conservatives might have taken the seat from the Lib Dems.

Well done Lib Dems. 

Perhaps the most interesting figure there is UKIP's 22% in Marple South, just 1% point behind the Tories!   :o
