O'Farrell lauds swings to Liberals

NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell says "massive" swings to the Liberal Party in yesterday's local government elections are a sign of things to come at a federal level.

State Liberals are celebrating after swings of more than 20 per cent in some western Sydney areas.

The Liberals gained ground in many Sydney councils, with their vote up by 7 per cent in Ashfield and 10 per cent in Bankstown and Blacktown.

Liberals gained a massive 40 per cent in Camden - a council it had never contested before - and Liverpool may get a Liberal mayor.

Mr O'Farrell says both Labor and the Greens lost support, which should provide comfort to Federal Opposition Leader Tony Abbott.
