*snigger* Oh dear. Watching Channel 4 last night when the political broadcast came on for the Lib Dem bloke and he said that we need a mayor who can look after the police force and how he is an ex police man who would be o so right for the job.
The whole process is amusing and embarrassing to say the least. I don't like any of the candidates. Ah well best make a decision but Tearful Ken will be unlikely to make the cut.
It's obviously political strategy. Modern politics is in favour of politicians showing some emotion, because it shows they are passionate about what they believe in, and it works time and time again. The more charismatic politician is shown to be in a campaign, the more likely he is to win.
I'd be incline to vote for Ken Livingstone, because he has made actively made a binding promise on some issues, upon which, if he defaults will be forced to resign, so he is the safer option. Boris, although, generally more charismatic, has some what petered out and whereas before he did thing that were in the best interest for London, is conforming to policy being implemented by both Tory and Lib Dem politician in this coalition government on matters such as a reduction in the number of police in the police, when crime and incidents like the London riots are on the increase, which I believe isn't London's best interest.
And this is coming from a person that normally votes Lib Dems.
