First the good news: the Conservative Party remains in control of Elmbridge Borough Council, we have increased our majority to 6 by taking a seat in St George’s Hill and the voting public have decisively rejected the tactics of the local residents’ associations, as discussed in previous posts. We can now get on with delivering first class public services at a reasonable cost once again.
Now the bad news: I didn’t get either of my wishes: no Conservative majority, and Grimsby Town were relegated to the Blue Square Premier league on Saturday. Still, there’s a reasonable chance of a Conservative / Liberal coalition government. I only hope that Cameron does not give up the Free Schools policy as the price of agreement. I’d rather have PR, if I were forced to choose, than to lose the education policy. And kind though it was of Michael Gove to offer up his potential Cabinet seat, I hope DC isn’t so daft as to take him up on his offer.
As for the footy – nothing but grim despair, I’m afraid.
