God help us. No Overall Control on Oxford City Council, with Labour the largest party, having gained four seats.
The Conservatives appear to have lost the two who defected to them. I guess the Independent Trots or whatever they call themselves have lost two, and the Greens are down one, with all but one of those seats going to Labour.
The Greens and the two surviving Trots hold the balance. Another two years of Toytown infighting between juvenile gangs more interested in making political points than in making progress.
Now, I guess, they sit down in smoke-free rooms to decide who gets the big chair. Please don’t let it be Labour’s John Tanner – John Prescott’s brain combined with Ken Livingstone’s charm, the fingernail down Oxford’s blackboard, the old-style Socialist whose Socialist ideas never seem to benefit any identifiable group.
How do you lose seats to Labour in this election?
