  • "What is evident in many of these seats,Rumworth the fifth by my reckoning-is the ethnic vote is keeping Labour in power on the council. Without that,they would be seriously struggling. The stats back this up. UKIP at least win a seat and they ran Labour close in Farnworth. It's a matter of time maybe 3-4 years until these Labour seats like Farnworth and Little Lever fall to UKIP. Rotherham has shown the way tonight and towns like Bolton will follow."
