British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative party fared better than expected in local elections in England, results on Friday showed, in her first test since losing her parliamentary majority last year.The party held on to key London councils despite a big push by the main opposition Labour party, which failed to live up to its own hype.The U.K. Independence Party (UKIP), which has seen its support collapse since the 2016 vote for Brexit, was all but wiped out, while the pro-European Liberal Democrat party made gains.Labour admitted "mixed" results despite a difficult week for May, who was plagued once again by cabinet divisions over Brexit as well as a row over immigration that toppled one of her top ministers.UKIP general secretary Paul Oakley denied his party was all but over, bizarrely comparing it to the Black Death plague which wiped out as much as a third of Europe's population in the 14th century.
