I wrote a long rant about this which was eaten, not by Livejournal, but by a shonky 3G connection, which I won't attempt to recreate, but: London, this whole "voting for Boris" thing had best be biased polling by biased papers and/or a fake protest vote.

Boris Fucking Johnson. Christ. Vote for Paddick, vote Green (I may well vote Green first, Ken second) but for fuck's sake be serious here.

I haven't found who YouGov spoke to for this poll yet. Have you? But yes, suspect as all fuck. I'm going to look for Johnson's manifesto yet, see where he thinks he'll get the money to replace the bendy buses with fully disabled accessible Routemasters, for starters.

As far as I recall that one was pretty comprehensively shot down pricewise. It's all like that, things which are clearly impractical or he can't do anyway (the police one for instance) which I imagine means that should he win all that'll be ignored and his "advisors" will be trying out the latest from the tory think tanks.

Paddick

Sorry, but Paddick is the most fun EVER. I knew him slightly when he was the police chief of Brixton. He did a really great job - really got into the community and was beginning to make a difference - his style was so different to the usual bent copper stuff it was really refreshing. It frightened the jobsworth freemasons of the Met Police so much they had to rake the muck on his personal life - they were really scared of how well he was getting on. And he did enjoy his nightlife!

Fridgemagnet will recall his posting to the Urban 75 (?) site about anarchism - widely misreported in the press in order to bring him down.

This guy has much more to him than people realise - and a LOT, LOT more than Boris the Buffoon - unfortunately he chose to stand as a Lib Dem - he'd have been better as an Independent.

Boris is supposed to be "clever". Well, I just read a press report about how clever people get conned more often than those not so clever! Can you just imagine Mayor Boris at the 2012 Olympics - eeeeew!

'usual bent copper stuff'. Well done, you win this lifetime's supply of FAIL.
