Defence secretary Gavin Williamson has said the Conservative Party are “confident” ahead of the local elections, during a visit to Camden today.
The MP for South Staffordshire told the Ham&High that there was no fear about the results on Thursday May 3.
If current polling is correct, the party could be set to lose seats and councils across the capital.
He said: “We’re very confident. We’re fighting in Camden to hold seats, and win seats, and that’s the kind of approach we want to do.
“We want to make sure the local Labour council do a proper job, because they’ve not being doing a very good job up to now.”
