A Council which has been in power for 28 years manages to persuade its electorate to allow it four more years and increase its majority.
You'll agree that's pretty special now add the words Liberal Democrat into that sentence and you can see why this story soars straight to the top of the premier league.
Currently that party is close to losing 100 seats is about 13% down in votes and is neighbour the Liberal Democratic run Kingston Council - which has just conceded defeat to the Conservatives.
Whichever way you look at it the Lib Dems have run an incredibly successful campaign having run a very successful council. That's not my view it is the view of the thousands of people who voted for them - because this was their chance to say otherwise.
They had UKIP to turn to, a Labour party which elsewhere in London was making gains and a Conservative party which had four years to plan their campaign - but they chose the Liberal Democrats.
They trusted them to steer our borough through what is likely to be a very difficult period.
I have nothing but admiration for their skill in this achievement. As every team knows it is much easier to attack than defend - but defend they did and won handsomely.
There is now a lot of new blood but also more long standing councillors who can guide their new colleagues through the "excitements" of local political life.
It was a great result for them but actually it was a great result for us all because after 10 hours of being in Westcroft there was every fear that we were never going to get out!
How about a Friday day count next time chaps - I will be four years older.
I tweeted in slight mockery that Mr Clegg should visit Sutton as soon as possible to try and understand how to win elections.
But it is true actually where else would you go if you wanted to see Liberal Democrat success and wanted that success emulated in other parts of the country.
Remember this wasn't part of a council this was the whole 50 and more seats up for grabs.
I look forward to his visit.
