GETTYLabour could do well in London
Some media commentators said the two big parties, Conservative and Labor, were deadlocked, but both prime minister Theresa May and main opposition Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn hailed the results for their respective parties.
Neither party deserved to make a major breakthrough. In this respect, it's too early to say whether this is Peak May and Peak Corbyn as some suggest - Brexit, the biggest uncertainty of all, is very much still in play. Corbyn successfully parked the issue at last year's general election, with Labour attracting support from people who voted Remain in 2016.
No clear party victor has emerged following Thursday's local elections in England, according to a BBC News report on Saturday.
However, they lost the southwestern city of Plymouth to Labour and lost control of Trafford, its flagship council in northern England.

Labour lawmaker Cat Smith said Britain had seen few cases of fraud at polling stations and the proposals were "a sledgehammer to crack a nut".
Umunna, a long standing critic of the current Labor leadership, added: "From a Labor point of view there needs to be a proper post-mortem - I think the National Executive Committee should appoint somebody to do that - on this result". Many claim that had the vote share been the same at a general election, we would be facing a hung parliament.
Mr Corbyn's party lost Nuneaton and Bedworth - an area that often indicates the colour of the government at general elections - as well as Derby and fell short of gaining control in areas like Swindon, Dudley and Walsall, where they had hoped to establish middle England strongholds.
May was punished right across the country in a general election last summer, losing her parliamentary majority after a campaign that alienated core voters with unpopular social policy and saw her style criticised as robotic and impersonal. She did that a year ago, and lost her overall majority in the House of Commons.
Labour council leaders also have to take their share of responsibility where results don't go as we would wish.
