I see that Clyde Loakes has managed to creep out from under the stone he hid under during the general election to become a member of the cabinet of the now wholly Labour controlled administration of 2-star Waltham Forest. He is going to be in charge of bins and negotiating with Keir for street sweeping, which is what they call 'the environment' in Waltham Forest. I wonder what he will find in his in-tray this time round?
