The front page of the Eastbourne Herald of 1 May claimed, on the basis of a cheeky letter left in the Treasury by a childish Labour official, that there was no money left when the Tories came into office in 2010.

The Green Party Spring Conference is now over and I have the luxury of a few hours of rest and relaxation before I head off on the long journey southwards to my beloved Sussex shore.
