Recommended Reading List #54

With the general election announcement candidates and the public will all be vying with each other to dominate the airwaves and set the agenda. So it's worth giving space to our foremost political correspondent the BBC South's Peter Henley, who gives a preliminary overview of the background the election will be played out against in Berkshire.

He states the Royal County is a land of contrasts with "smart country villages alongside London overspill, well-heeled commuter estates surrounding streets with inner-city levels of crime." And mirroring this is a 'pretty colourful' political debate too.

The expenses affair and political funding will both be battleground in Berkshire, while social, economic and environmental issues will make for an unpredictable outcome all round as each side has hope of making gains!
