Nick Robinson: Election results give Theresa May respite from bad news
Political commentator on local election results
- Nick Robinson with a tweet on the significance of May's election results
Nick is a pretty shrewd commentator on UK politics and this is the takeaway for us. May is now unlikely to face a leadership challenge from her own party. Furthermore, with Labour being billed as having had slightly disappointing results, so far, this strengthens May's hand. This will give her a good position to negotiate Brexit from a position of relative domestic stability within her own party. Follow the UK local election results here.
