We find ourselves today in two sorts of doldrums. First of all we are in the local government doldrums. Just at this time the whole of local government is in the throes of the most drastic reorganisation that has ever been undertaken in this field, with the consequence that local government officials tend to fall into two categories — those who are secure in their jobs but have two jobs to do; and those who are insecure and are too busy applying for their own or other people's jobs to be much concerned about the future. In the second place we are in the post‐Russell doldrums. We have spent four years waiting for Russell and another eight months (so far) waiting for Mrs. Thatcher to pronounce on Russell and to give the lead we all so ardently desire.
