now we know that labour get its ass handed to it - losing 273 seats nationally leaving just 176 (independants got 95!)

how would this reflect if this was a genral election (which could happen in september if the SNP call no confidence - like in 1979)

so how much would labour lose if the drubbing in the council elections was in fact nationally?

The Euro election results will probably give a better indication of nationwide feelings etc.
However, it is fair to expect more of the same.

Thr only hope Labour have, and it is a remote one at that, is to replace Brown immediately.
Unfortunately for them I personally can't think of any creditable and viable alternatives who could do the job and appeal to the electorate.

Freeborn is right that the EU elections will give us a better indication but if you want to look back to history, the end of the last Tory Government under John Major is worth reviewing.

The Government has a typically working majority of 63 Westminister Parties

The current Government has 350 MPs but I guess that the next Government, which I guess will be Tory will have in the order of 450 seats, given them a working majority in the order of 200. The big discussion point would be the number of seats split between Labour and LibDem.
