    Mayor Johnson on the Letterman Show

    Our Mayor has been touting London’s wares in the US. Part of this involved appearing on Letterman, which is about as embarrassing as you might expect – no more, no less. I have no idea what they must think of us.

    For the first time in a London Mayoral election environmental issues have really come to the fore. Whether it’s the glorious cycle campaigners, cutting air pollution, or how to get our public transport eco-friendly we’ve seen these issues force themselves onto the candidates in no uncertain manner. It’s estimated that […]

    There’s some lovely singing on this Sack Boris video. Apparently it is a “play on Phil Ochs’ song “Here’s to the State of Mississippi””

    This is the first of a short series this week where we look at the way people are voting SECOND preference in the coming Mayoral election. Lawrence Webb, UKIP’s Mayoral candidate, (pictured) explains why he’s voting for Boris Johnson, after UKIP. I believe that if the voting system were better […]

    A nice little campaign video from Sack Boris, the unaffiliated anti-Johnson group. A toe tapper, if a little focused on the negative.

    The election broadcast for the Conservative Party. Watch it and judge for yourself.   What are we  to make of this? Sad music, gazing wistfully out of a train window… I was wondering whether this might turn into a tampon advert. Curiously it is slightly downbeat rather than inspirational, although in […]

    Tax row backfires on Livingstone

    News April 6, 2012 11:58 am 1 comment

    Labour’s team thought they had the super-rich Mayor Boris Johnson over a barrel on his tax affairs but it seems as if the whole thing has backfired, damaging their own candidate. For some time now the rumbling row over who pays how much taxes has threatened to overwhelm the actual […]

    When will London’s personality politics end?

    As we approach the London Assembly elections in May Londoners will naturally become more interested in what the different parties have to say to them about their vision for London. However, they’re far more likely to find out what the parties think the flaws of their opponents are than any […]

    David Davies explains why cabbies may not be backing Boris.   The Mayor was forced to admit in an interview last week that when he said to the Assembly that the phone hacking scandal was ‘codswallop’  he was completely wrong. Investigations have subsequently shown that there has been significant corruption, […]
