Pressure on Blair after elections

With most results in, Labour has lost 464 seats and eight councils, including Newcastle and Leeds. The Tories gained 263 seats, including Trafford.

[...]

According to BBC analysis of 500 key wards, the results mean that Labour has slipped to third place in terms of share of the vote - 12% behind the Conservatives and 3% behind the Liberal Democrats.

If correct, it would be the first time a party in government has finished third in terms of national share of the vote in local elections.
