The Nifty 250: News of the day in so many words

Bradley still the captain; Britain's got talent, says Rafa; honest Tories may pull rug on new Royal Hospital

Published on May 20th 2010.

Warren Bradley has narrowly retained his role as leader of the Liberal Democrats in Liverpool.

He squeezed in, with a 20 to 17 majority, past Cllr Paula Keaveney who suggested a shuffle in the ranks after the Lib Dems lost their long held grip of Town Hall.

While blinding the people with brilliant sunshine from behind, Warren boasted: "I am a Bradley, I suppose, and you never give up, you carry on pulling out all the stops."

Cllr Keaveney insisted her challenge had never been about simply deposing Cllr Bradley but about the party going forward.

Despite the narrow scale of her loss, she insisted the party was not divided."It was not about dislodging somebody, it was about thinking about how we take the party forward." Spoon of salt anyone?...

Liverpool FC's Rafa Benitez has revealed his intent to sign more young British players.

Additions such as Jonjo Shelvey, 18, from Charlton Athletic and the much

praised 15 year old Raheem Sterling from QPR- who is widely regarded as possessing the potential to become the next Theo Walcott or Wayne Rooney - is a sign that the club is making up for its lack of home grown talent.

Let's just hope he's not Stevie G's replacement.

A 'fairer', 'more honest' coalition government has been instated and one week later... we receive word that promised plans to develop the Royal Liverpool University Hospital might be dumped.

Andrew Lansley, then Tory health spokesman, pledged in March that he would "protect" funding for the badly-needed new hospital.

Labour's Andy Burnham, the former health secretary, condemned the decision, saying: "This project was long in the planning and subject to rigorous testing. The decision to put a question mark back over the Royal risks damaging people’s confidence, so the Government needs to provide clarity urgently."

There will be a comprehensive spending review in the autumn. No decisions have yet been taken."
