I guess Hughes fears he will be swept away at the next election in a tide of anti-Lib Dem feeling so is putting out all these publications does anyone actually read them?) and cant really attack the government of which his party is a member so turns on the body that is having to implement the cuts introduced by his government - Southwark Council
Talking of Hughes I wouldnt be surprised if he decides to retire before the next election rather than lose. He is 60ish now and has been an MP for almost 30 years so could go out as an elder statesman rather than an election loser. With this in mind maybe Pigeon (http://www.carolinepidgeon.org/) will put herself forward as candidate - shes certainly positioning herself well.
