never mind about Lembit Opik being there, let's hope Sutton sees sense & keep the Tories & UKIP out. I for one tactically voted LibDem as I think our Lib Dem council doesn't do a bad job. Sometimes it gets it very wrong...look at all the money wasted on the town centre upgrade, but on the whole I am happy with them. UKIP are too right wing for my liking and as for the Tories...don't get me started. So am rooting for the yellows all the way here
