NotesArtwork not dated : Date estimated from news News : Conservative party chiefs last night braced themselves for heavy losses in London in todays local elections as they pleaded with supporters to ignore the disarray at the top and concentrate on local issues. Senior strategists admitted the strong possibility that such stalwart Tory boroughs as Enfiled, Ealing, and Croydon could fall to Labour. They even declined to predict that the Tories would hold on to their flagship council of Wandsworth. Sir Norman Fowler, the Conservative Chairman, called on Tory supporters to turn out in strength and vote. He denied that todays vote was a referendum on John Major.
