The Only Way Is Up - Way Up

Don't Bogart that joint, my friend...The last time Labour did this badly in the local elections, the Beatles were top of the charts, Flower Power was all the rage and I wasn't born. Now, 40 years on, these bloody former hippies are all voting Tory. What the hell is going on?

Still, I'm sure we'll learn the lessons. All we need to do is listen more carefully and make sure that our successes are properly communicated to the electorate. So, starting tomorrow it's more focus groups and more PR consultants.

Whoopie! The only way is up. A long, long way up.
