Dear Editor ,

London has bucked the tragedy of rising unemployment – it fell between November and January, whereas the UK as a whole saw a rise.

The Boris and Conservative-run local authorities have brought to an end the years of profligacy at tax payers expense because they believe people know best how to spend their own money to make ends meet during the recession.

It is no coincidence that unemployment in London has actually fallen in the last three months given tax-payer focused Conservative administrations run so much of it.

Yours faithfully

Richard Tracey
London Assembly member for Merton and Wandsworth
