London Mayor election 2012

Seeing as this election is so much more to do with the personalities involved rather than the parties they represent, I thought it deserved a separate thread. So, if you lived in London, who would you be voting for today?

Re: London Mayor election 2012

Funny, I thought Boris and Ken were such towering figures they might have prompted a discussion despite this being a London-only contest. Perhaps not.

Personally I couldn't give a crap but I just asked Natalie and she thinks Boris because he's a clown.... Apparently.

Re: London Mayor election 2012

I voted for Ken, he has said that he will put more police officers on the streets, instead of cutting them.

He has also said that if some of his policies have not been brought in by a certain date, then he will resign, All Boris is doing is following the Tory line, he has done nothing about public transport, fares are on the increase and people have to stand in poor conditions.

He said that he plans to increase the trains on the tube, how can he, you can only run so many on the same track. He also wants driver less trains, the same as Tokyo, but you cannot do that on the underground, some of the tunnels are more than 100 years old and are not very good - proves Boris is behind the times.

In Tokyo, they have new tunnels, and better technology than us and are not scared to spend money.

Ken Livingstone told 85 different lies during this campaign. If you voted for him based on his promises, quite frankly you're a mug and I suspect you believed what you wanted to believe, simply because the other guy is a Tory.

Boris a buffoon and to be honest I am amazed that tory voters put up with him.

Boris is personally very popular in London - a fact that may be hard for your Tory-loathing scouse brain to compute, but it is the reason why the polls say he is going to win the vote today despite his party's major ongoing popularity issues.

He is well-liked enough that a lot of dyed-in-the-wool Labour supporters are voting for him rather than holding their noses and voting for Ken 'tax avoidance' Livingstone.

Methinks Boris is not the buffoon he appears. Well not always.

He may sometimes act the buffoon but he is quite intelligent....
