And what are the Tories playing at?

Quick postscript on yesterday's council meeting. The Tories voted against Labour's Helen Holland continuing as council leader, but then, acccording to the BEP: [Tory leader] Mr Eddy - who denied he had been under pressure from David Cameron and Conservative Central Office to distance himself from Labour - said afterwards: "It was the best result for Bristol."We have seen that the Liberal Democrats are not up to the leadership of this city."

And the Lib Dems' Barbara Janke said: "Another political shake-up at the top after barely a year, with no elections taking place, could make the city council a laughing stock." Let me get this right - she's saying that if the Lib Dems took back control...?
