Elections reaction and the county show!

Devoncast

Friday, 12 May 2023 - 28 minutes

We’re joined by a political expert on this week’s Devoncast.

Dr Stuart Fox, senior lecturer in politics at the University of Exeter, shares his thoughts on Devon’s local election results and what they tell us ahead of next year’s likely general election.

Should the Liberal Democrats be confident after gaining dozens of new councillors? Is Labour on course for a return to Downing Street? And could there be a bit of solace amidst the gloom for Tories?

We also hear from two of the victorious party leaders in Devon. Luke Taylor’s Lib Dems romped to victory in Mid Devon, while David Thomas’s Conservatives bucked the trend to take overall control in Torbay.

And with the Devon County Show returning next week [18-20 May], acting show manager Lisa Moore tells us what to expect from this year’s event at Westpoint near Exeter.
