    Despite what Pickles thinks, the public values council services

    Yesterday, the Liverpool Echo launched its manifesto for the general election. It’s a compilation of the key issues that the tens of thousands of readers think are most important.

    Yet more constituency research shows that there is a very real chance that Nick Clegg could lose his seat to Labour in May. Lord Ashcroft’s latest batch of Lib Dem marginals polling shows that Labour’s Oliver Coppard currently holds a two point lead over the Deputy PM.
