Sadiq Khan, Labour’s Mayor of London, commenting on the 2018 local election results in London said:
“With many results still to come, it looks like Labour has made even more progress across London and are heading for our best result in the capital since 1971.
We’ve gained dozens of Councillors in every corner of our city – in both inner and outer London – and we’ve won seats in parts of London unimaginable until now.
We’ve won seats like the West End in Westminster and Barkingside in Redbridge- where we’ve never had a Labour Councillor before.
This is another key stepping stone for London Labour in the continual progress we’ve been making since 2014 in local, Mayoral and general elections – and paves the way for more progress in the future.
All of this is only possible because of the hard work of Labour members campaigning all over London – no matter how difficult it looks.
We should never apologise for being ambitious and fighting for every vote – and taking the fight to the Tories in every corner of our city.”
