The Conservative vote collapsed in a number of wards where the party won seats at the last election.

In 2017, the Tories were celebrating taking seats in places like Calton and Shettleston for the first time.

This time it only managed to hold on to two, with Thomas Kerr holding his seat in Shettleston and John Daly retaining Baillieston for the Tories.

They lost in Linn, with Euan BLockly out and the longest serving Tory councillor, David Meikle, was ousted in Pollokshields.

Glasgow Times:

Ade Abinue lost to the Greens in Victoria Park and Robert Connolly lost to Labour in Calton.

Mr Kerr was in no doubt as to the reason.

He laid the blame firmly at the door of number 10 Downing Street.

He said: “I am naturally disappointed. We have lost some good colleagues. We ran an upbeat campaign  out message was resonating and Labour picked up on it with the state of the city."

The Tories attenpted to focus on local issues and tell people the Prime Minister was not on the ballot in Glasgow but the voters had other ideas.

Mr Kerr said“I’m convinced Boris Johnson is the main reason we have lost these seats.

“We still have big plans for the city and will be looking forward to workignwith other parties to improve the city.”
