Thet're idiots. And the Greater London Authority is unlikely to have a Tory majority. At most a hung parliament with a Lab/Lib coalition.

Did you see this wikipedia map?

The situation in the London assembly is a little more complicated than I was aware of, with an additional-member system. Lib/Lab/Green have 14 of 25 seats, but the Tories have a plurality of 9 and the UKIP has 2.

I'd forgotten about Cornwall. Maybe they'll secede as well...

Thanks. The map cleared things up a great deal.

You know, I'm beginning to see signs of a trend developing in that this will be the second time I'll live in a liberal city surrounded by strongly-conservative areas.  Note the red patch in the middle of all the blue.  First Tallahassee, now Nottingham.
