Well done Gordon and Tony - you kept the seat warm for the real Tories (and their junior partner)
So we have a Tory government back in power. I think the news said it was only the 19th or 20th Etonian leader!
What will this mean for the economy and the public sector then? David C says we have some 'difficult choices' - make no mistake this is code for we are going to make massive cuts to public services and jobs - not we will close the tax loop holes for the super rich, make the top 100 rich list pay more taxes or avoid buying more nukes.
So it will be interesting to see whether the increased New Labour majority in Lewisham council resists these Tories cuts. Of course myself and Ian from our experience of sitting in that chamber, know they wont.
Equally of interest will be how the 'official opposition' in the council, the Liberal Democrats, will relate to New Labour in opposing the cuts given they are the junior partner in the new Tory national administration!
