Labour regain full control of Islington Council

BallotboxIn a massive reversal Labour has regained total control of Islington Council with a strong majority.  The Council website has a map of the result, although sadly the map makes the result harder to understand by not telling you what the majority is.

A bit of sleep deprived addition though was says that Labour has 35 seats and the Lib Dems 13.  Hopefully some full statistics will be up in the next few days.

The big challenge for any council now will be to manage inevitable spending cuts while still delivering essential services.

My big hope for Kings Cross is that we can get a co-ordinated and targetted resources for youth work and long term commitment to tackle the factors leading to so much tragic crime in recent years.
