Think Boris will win comfortably anyway, he's distanced himself enough from the government in the popular consciousness.

am starting to think that "selfish buffoon" is kind of the default mayoral choice for metropolitan mayors

Now I like Ken Livingstone, and I like Boris Johnson, but which is better? There's only one way to find out... #kenandboris #fight

4 weeks pass...

JD Wetherspoon chairman Tim Martin added: “When I first moved to London, Ken was in charge and he opened this huge library near where I lived in Wood Green. It was my first taste of his extravagance and that’s always stuck with me. So I’m backing Boris — I hope he’ll spend money more wisely than Ken has done.”

god this is TOMORROW

any particular feelings about jenny jones or siobhan benita? or brian paddick, indeed.

This is the quietest election ever, I've barely even noticed it.

Wonder if Paddick might come in fourth.

Homosexual Satan Wasp (Matt DC), Wednesday, 2 May 2012 10:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

maybe because boris is so far ahead in the polls? or because it's not exactly an inspiring choice

liberté, égalité, beyoncé (lex pretend), Wednesday, 2 May 2012 10:36 (2 years ago) Permalink

if the populus poll is to be believed there's a possibility that paddick might come FIFTH :o

I've been more aware of Paddock than any of the others as his "i'm a copper" billboards seem to be all over South London. Probably not the best way to go to attract Brixton votes, really.

Upt0eleven, Wednesday, 2 May 2012 10:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

isn't his entire shtick meant to be "i'm a copper but not like all them other corrupt thuggish coppers and i will REFORM the POLICE"? he's not v good at conveying it

i spent a few hours the other week googling the london assembly candidates in the little booklet. how did people work out who was running before the internet?

i guess the plethora of right-wing splitter parties should serve to split the vote so it's a good thing, but it's horrible flipping through the booklet and being like, oh look, there's the BNP, the 3nglish d3mocrats, UKIP and the National Front! plus some bullshit about traditional marriage.

paddick has been comparing himself to galloway, apparently, based on a) their low polling numbers and b) their reality tv show pasts

:(

you can't even make punchlines about these people any more

can't say i'm not tempted by benita purely because she's a faceless dull civil servant and not a personality clown, but protest-voting is kinda lame isn't it

I passed Boris' bus this morning, outside the Hilton, Paddington. He was not in it.

It's only because he hopes Boris'll close it so that he can turn it into a pub called The Library.

yeah his are the only ads i've seen. in kingston, where i guess it could sell.

tho i haven't received my polling card, i imagine i'll turn up at the office tomorrow and my vote will have been nicked.

Don't think it's that cut-and-dried, he effectively decriminalized cannabis in Brixton. Of course he's also a LibDem and a nonentity as a politician.

he has those posters in finsbury park and tottenham also, i can confirm

I got a Ken leaflet through my letterbox the other night at 10pm just after I'd shut off the TV and the whole house was quiet, it frightened the hell out of me.

my french housemate who's not eligible to vote has received a voting card, maybe you could just use hers merdeyeux

xp, i got an election leaflet at eleven pm, a few years ago, while watching The Exorcist. I nearly died.

The election was probably there for the taking with a stronger candidate but i can't see Boris getting beaten by Ken. The Labour campaign has been half-hearted, at best. At worst, it's looked like they've actually wanted Boris to win - possibly with a view to him challenging Cameron for leadership somewhere down the line.
