    It’s going to be great weather today. All best wishes and good luck to Don Palmer for the District and Robyn Fawcett for the City. We’re all hoping that they both do well for Labour today, to show the Tories that local people are totally fed up with their punishing cuts and disastrous decisions like the Friarsgate fiasco!
