Tomorrow/Today we elect a Mayor and Council in London.
Labour’s candidate is Ken Livingstone, he is fighting to replace the right-wing tory, Boris Johnson.
I was planning to summarise my feelings but if you check out my internet spore, I think you know how I feel. Nicky Gavron, a GLA Assembly Member summarizes brilliantly, why Ken is right for London, and Johnson is wrong in her blog article, Ken v Boris.
The key powers of the Mayor are Transport, Police and Planning. Ken’ll reduce the fares, bring stability to the Police and use the planning powers in the interests of Londoners to build affordable housing.
Johnson will increase fares at above inflation, sack policemen and Comissioners and built 56 houses in the last six months.
There’s only one sensible choice. Vote Labour for London.
