Local government expert, Tony Travers, writes in the Evening Standard (p17) using an indicator table to predict how Londoners could vote in this May's elections.

The table covers 'feel-good' and 'feel-bad' factors such as unemployment or the state of the property market, crime rates in different boroughs and standards in education.

Interestingly the figures shows huge increases in reported crime in the outer, generally Tory controlled boroughs. More Londoners are out of work and trapped in homes they cannot sell.

Conservatives best election hope lies with the two issues which underpin the main planks of their campaign; low cost councils and high performing education authorities, says the paper.
