READING STAYED REDDISH

Good news for Labour from Reading at last weeks local elections. All expected Labour to lose it and David Cameron went to Reading on April 17 to say he intended to take control of the council. Well, the Tories didn’t and the council is now NOC … but Labour are still the largest party. In fact, Labour in Reading did better under Brown in 2008 than under Blair in 2007. In my own words: “Spooky but true.”

Some might say we gave the Tories a bloody nose, other ask how loosing Four seats to Tories and even one to the Liberals can be seen as a victory, but Iv;e been in politics for decades and I know what Im’ about. Whats a few seats when we didnt do as badly as some predicted.
