An interesting afternoon and evening. I went over the Council’s offices at River Park House in Wood Green to do a bit of work before tonight’s full Council.
Sitting on the photocopier, in the time honoured fashion, was an interesting analysis of the implications of the Seven Sisters election result. It confidently predicts a Liberal Democrat majority after the next council elections.
The report gives a “predicted majority” for every ward on the Council. In the narrative at the end, it mentions Woodside, which it says the “Lib Dems would take” and says “in the split wards of Noel Park, Haringey, and Bounds Green, the Lib Dems would win a clear majority, possibly costing Labour 5 seats.”
By my reckoning, that give a prediction of 33 Lib Dems and 24 Labour at the election next year. Not something you'd want to leave sitting arround!
