Thread to discuss the upcoming council elections!

Really hoping the current Labour/Tory coalition in Aberdeen will be booted out but since the tories did so well in Aberdeen in the Holyrood election I'm scared they might just about hold on. The SNP actually got the most votes in the city last time but only 28% of the vote so hopefully that'll rise significantly.

Poll puts vote share for the main parties as SNP 46% (+14 from 2012), Tory 19 (+6), Labour 17 (-14), Lib Dem 6 (-1), Green 8 (+6) & UKIP 3 (+3).

I think there will be a fair few SNP voters in Glasgow & Edinburgh that first preference greens. They should gain a few seats but unlike at Holyrood it won't gift Davidson a constituency seat and kill our chances of a majority.

I'm electing a Mayor for Manc and thankfully am able to preference. Leaning towards first preferencing the greens at the moment then preferencing Burnham last (I ain't voting for UKIP or the Tory lot) so in the head to head he gets my nod over a Tory

If Scotland does become independent I can see the Greens making big gains from us as I'd imagine some voters (although not most) will have voted SNP as they give the best chance of independence but actually line up more with the Greens.
