I wouldn’t put too much store on the Conservative performance in the locals in Britain, but Cameron unlike his predecessors hardly broke sweat to make 40% of the vote in this latest electoral test. And he remains focused on where his party is still underperforming – ie the north o England. But is Labour intent on ripping up it’s own chances of retaining the keys to Number 10.
