New political scene considered harmful

It seems that the West Berks political scene shifted dramatically last Thursday. One moment I was living in the LibDem republic of West Berks and the next, when I woke up on Friday, we had not only lost our hard-working MP, David Rendel, to a Tory landowner, but also had a new local council as well.

I had enjoyed my all too brief stay in this island of yellow amongst a sea of blue, but things had gone wrong and I had entered a new world of strife.

I had better start working hard to elevate this place from the masses again.
