Harlow Labour Party really should not be dismissing UKIP. We won the most seats on the night, and the popular vote with 34%. The new Council is Labour 17, Conservative 11 and UKIP 5. In short Labour only held onto the Council by those 26 votes in Harlow Common! With an extra 26 in Harlow Common, 28 in Toddbrook and 58 in Sumners & Kingmoor a Council balance of Labour 15, Conservative 10 and UKIP 8 - taking it to no overall control was just 112 votes away! The big old two parties were humbled - BIG TIME! Harlow's Purple Revolution has started!
