11:10 am
well, good question. you'd think that says sweeping up the rubbish from the streets and an education and things like that that are done. other dealt with by local councils would not really be big news, but this is a temperature test, an evaluation of the quality of leadership in government in the u. k. and right now the conservative party is doing badly, a devastating results here in london. 3 major councils, switching that to labor control ones with barnett, and it couldn't get much closer than this. westminster city council now in the hands of the labor party, the 1st time since 1964. so that is the situation in london. a big gains for labor elsewhere. it's a little bit more patchy modest gains for labor in the rest of england, and we're hearing from scotland of wells results coming in later on today. so
11:11 am
crucially, and at the end of the day, how much will this damage the prime in suppress johnson will. that is the big question, because so far is johnson and his whole bevy of problems, particularly with party gates, where he's already had one fine, could get more than the police have now got a stop on on taking action to let this these council elections go through not only that, there are other scandals within his party, one m p choosing to watch openly pornography on his phone inside of parliament, a whole host of other issues. and on top of that, the cost of living crisis, which is really getting to people in the u. k, that coupled with what some regard as an unstable leadership of the conservative party is mounting. but that's not really too much into this early days in terms of results. london may be a major win for labor, but elsewhere, as i say, it's
11:12 am
a bit patch here. and the liberal democrats, the 3rd party in these, in these results, are making considerable gain. so the conservative party it, it will look at the situation, not just the situation with labor, which will say, well, i've done pretty well. mid term. it's bound to happen, but it's if it's bigger than that, and it's looking as if it could be, if it really is a seismic against the conservatives than boris johnson with all of the bad things that have gone on could face trouble not just with the british public with his own party. we know a lot of conservative m. p 's are unhappy with his leadership and that could be 54, a letters of no confidence in the prime minister that triggers a leadership contest. and that means that forest johnson could well, i be forced to resign or indeed try to get himself in a position where he wins leadership race and maybe loses it. so that is the big
11:13 am
question right now. could this despite what many regard, what many politicians regard as his good a performance in dealing with the ukraine conflict that they regard his as being quite statesman like. but back home here, it's one big mess. but politically, that's and it will. those results still coming in from around the country he'll be keeping a close eye on them as we'll wait until thanks very much. cilla has hair on al jazeera holes in the philippines suggest, a solid lead for the son of former leader feminine marco in mondays and presidential elections and coming to terms of the true cost of cove. it how the pandemic real tow could be far higher than we thought. ah! the journey has begun. the 34 world camp is on its way to cattle. your travel
