A Great Day
A great day Boris is mayor, the Conservatives have won not just locally but right across the country and my son's village football team have today topped the under 8 league. He deserves a picture on the blog.
To cap it all the cricket season has started. I was doing my annual duty preparing the teams quintisentially English Cricket Tea today. In fact the only downside of today was having to explain to the team that we have to increase the tea budget. Credit crunch hits cricket.
A lot of this week's election result has been due to the economic reality facing voters - whilst I celebrate great election victories with all my Conservative friends I know we would rather have a booming economy.
Conservative Councillors across the country and Boris will be facing the frontline difficulties of providing public services in a falling economy with falling revenues. It is tough.
