ELECTION 2022: How social media is reacting to Worcester's election results

Rob George 6th May, 2022 Updated: 6th May, 2022

WORCESTER’s City Council results and the decision of council leader Coun Marc Bayliss to go home before a vote was counted has provoked a response on social media.

Among those to take to Twitter on the morning after the night before was Worcester’s former Labour MP with a mischievous tweet which suggested Coun Bayliss had ‘ran away’.

Labour’s former spin doctor Alastair Campbell even mentioned took to Twitter to pass comment on the results and perhaps not surprisingly used his platform to criticise the Conservative Party

The success of the Green Party has been feature of the social media reaction with newly-elected Coun Tom Piotrowski paying tribute to all those involved with his campaign.

The party nationally, which supported Worcester’s Green campaign with a visit from co-leader Carla Denyer, even took time to hail Green Party members locally for now ‘holding the balance of power’ at the Guildhall.
