Theresa May recently has announced a strong stand for Brexit, by announcing an early election in an attempt to bolster her Conservative Party while the opposition Labour Party is divided, while also depicting a battle between the UK and the EU, stating to 'give me your backing to fight for Britain'. The first test for her new policy seems to have been passed, as a string of local elections has fallen into the hands of the Conservative Party. The Labor party lost 100 seats in England and Wales and lost control of Glasgow council in Scotland for the first time in 40 years. UKIP, a party thriving on support by British conservatives, also lost every council seat it defended and gained only one council member. May is in a strong position, as those who make large gains in local elections are more likely to make larger gains in the national elections, according to recent trends.
