I started this blog on May 5th 2010, one day before the election. I feared the Tories would come to power and I wanted to track what this would mean for the ordinary people on the street. Unexpectedly the result of the election has made me actively involved in politics and I am now becoming increasingly active in my local Labour Party with ambitious plans to do more. I am working, with a 9 month old baby but I intend to keep this blog as up to date as possible. Any comments welcome!
