    I thought the Labour Party Mayoral Election Broadcast was pretty good. "Come on Ken!".

    But then again; I would say that.

    But the City needs Boris... Ken will ruin the city with all these cuts... where will the money come from exactly? I bet people will pay more in the long run than they will in the short term as it will be unsustainable.

    His promises amount to around £2.7bn in a time of economic hardship, when public spending is low, its simply a promise he can't follow up on

    Well, he does make it very clear that he will resign if he doesn't bring in the promise. It would be very hard for him to politically survive if he then didn't resign so I think he's very confident that he will be able to deliver.

    he doesn't strike me as the sort of person who keeps promises.

    He'll just say that the plans "need more time". Unless i missed it, he hasn't put a timescale on when this has to happen

    Err yes he did. I don't think you watched it.

    "In fact if I haven't delivered that fair cut by October the 7th this year, I will resign no question." - 0:39

    But that's only fares. That's easy to do, he hasn't promised it wont lose London money. There are no promises regarding the rest of the £2.7bn he intends to waste away. Deliver on the fare cuts, but nothing else, and he doesn't have to resign...

    I've only read the transcript, haven't seen it yet. In that case if he gets elected, he won't be lasting very long, will he?
    Depends doesn't it. As I say, he's obviously very confident that he can achieve that aim.

    just watched on your post, he only promises fares. Its easy to cut fares, he hasn't promised it wont lose money, and his "promise" doesn't cover any of his other campaign points.

    I never said it did cover everything. But it's still a pretty big commitment.

    Perhaps not Ken but certainly Obama. Melanchon is the more interesting candidate on the Left. Hollande is bland but then Mitterand was quite bland in the end and he got elected.
