As I blogged earlier, tonight was the night that Barnet's Tory council leader, Richard Cornelius, face a confidence vote over the controversial One Barnet outsourcing programme.
Unlike Alec Robertson at Cornwall council, who was axed after losing a similar vote over a similar issue, Cornelius hung on.

News from the council minutes ago was that the result was 24 votes against him, 32 for him 3 didn't vote and 4 were absent. So 32 out of 63 councillors voted for him. Just a majority. There are 22 Labour and 3 Liberal councillors at Barnet.
