I've been knocking on doors in Ely today. Four years ago there was only one Conservative councillor in East Cambridgeshire. The Lib Dems had doubled the council tax and were not popular. 15 new Conservatives were elected - not enough for control - but working together with independents they have kept the council tax rises to below 2.5%, the lowest in all the county. I would love to see a Conservative controlled council given a chance to put some decent policies through without constant backbiting from the LDs.
Last month I took David Cameron to Ely hospital. This month Theresa May visited. The Lib Dems say they care about local government and are (negative) campaigning hard but there's no sight of Ming.
