Voters set to punish UK PM May's Conservatives over Brexit delay

On Thursday English voters are expected to use local government elections to punish Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party over its failure to deliver Brexit, which is revealing a divided and dissatisfied electorate.

Rueters reports that more than 8,000 seats on English councils are up for grabs in the first elections since Britain missed its March 29 Brexit date.

The Conservatives are forecast to lose hundreds of seats.
