Warren's Worried, Very Worried
An email sent from Warren "War Zones" Bradley to Nick Clegg has been leaked to the BBC (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-13043023 ). It urges him to pull out of the ConDem coalition.
It's a far cry from last May when Bradley was waxing lyrical about the protection the Fib Dems would accord the city, despite all the evidence to the contrary (http://condensedthoughts.blogspot.com/2010/05/hes-still-there-you-know.html ): "[Bradley] said Liverpool should not expect savage cuts from the Tories like it suffered in the 1980s. And he added: '(Deputy Prime Minister) Nick Clegg has given me assurances that will not happen.
" 'Social justice that Liberal Democrats believe in will be a golden vein that runs through the coalition government.' "
Looks like that "golden vein" has well & truly run dry for Warren, as he contemplates the once unthinkable notion of Labour gains at the Fib Dems' expense in areas like Childwall.
