Keeping the British Liberal Party flag flying high

Calling it now. President Baker in 1977 🤪
Keep up the good work. Still reading after all these years.
We will see if Norma Jeane Baker is elected President in 1976. Though that year might be too early for a woman to run for President, so she might be elected Vice-President.

Thank you for the complinent. I'm glad you are still reading this TL.

After the election to the Welsh Senedd, a Socialist Labour/Liberal coalition government was formed.

The Local Government Act 1966 abolished the Greater London Council (GLC) and the Greater London boroughs, and restored the London County Council (LCC) and the Middlesex County Council. It also restored the London boroughs, and the local authority districts in Essex, Kent, Middlesex, and Surrey abolished by the GLC. It also abolished the office of alderman.

County council and borough council elections were held on 4 May 1967. In the LCC elections the number of seats won by each party were as follows:
Socialist Labour: 54
Conservative: 39
Liberal: 39
--------------
Total: 132
-------------
A Socialist Labour/Liberal coalition took control of the LCC.

After the Middlesex County Council election, the Tories were the largest party but did not have an overall majority. So a Liberal/Socialist Labour coalition took control of the council.

In the London borough council elections the councils won by each party were as follows:
Socialist Labour: Battersea, Bermondsey, Bethnal Green, Deptford, Greenwich, Poplar, St. Pancras, Shoreditch, Southwark, Stepney, Woolwich. Total = 11.

The Conservatives won the following 10 boroughs:
Chelsea, Fulham, Hampstead. Holborn, Kensington, Lewisham, Paddington, St. Marylebone, Wandsworth, Westminster.

The Liberals won three boroughs: Hackney, Islington, Stoke Newington. A Socialist Labour/Liberal coalition took control in Camberwell, Hammersmith, and Lambeth. In Finsbury a Liberal/Socialist Labour coalition took control of the council.
