Gutted but getting over it



So, Bojo is our new mayor. I can't say I'm happy about it and I will say now I didn't vote for him so that no one thinks I'm just saying it later.

I hope he turns out better for London than I fear and doesn't kowtow too much to Cameron at Tory HQ.

What is more worrying is the fact that the BNP now have a seat on the London Assembly. I really hope this isn't the start of a very slippery slope.

The obligatory election day post

As you all no doubt know, today is the day that Londoners elect their Mayor for the next 4 years, a post with arguably as much responsibility and visibility as the PM himself! In other words not something to be ignored. So if you are a Londoner reading this and you haven't been to vote yet, get out and do it! People have died to give you this opportunity so use it. (Unless of course you tried to but the council screwed up your proxy vote forms twice...)

I've been and voted and am now hoping for the right result for London come tomorrow!
