The London Communications Agency, a PR agency specialising in London based clients, has got together with Tony Travers of LSE to produce a set of predictions for the outcome of the local elections in London. For Ealing they predict:
“Lab is likely to hold Ealing though they will be squeezed by David Cameron’s impact and more responsive local Cons.”
As one of the “more responsive local Cons” I think we will do more than squeeze given Labour’s poor record of achievement in the last couple of years. I don’t think LCA and Tony Travers are fully au fait with the Audit Commission fiasco, the paying off of our last Chief Executive, the Response programme and the 2nd biggest rise in council tax across all London to name just a few.
