    Sadiq Khan is going to use London for one of Labour's socialist experiments.

    Goldsmith wants out of the EU. So much of London's business is dependent on the EU and it's the most pro EU area of Britain.

    Kahn really should win this, he's not spectacular, but Goldsmith is a right damp squib, wouldn't know a personality if it smacked him in the face.

    How could you not vote for someone called Pidgeon for Mayor of London. I bet she was only elected on the basis of this local connection in the first place

    I don't live in London but I would vote for Zac Goldsmith.

    Socialist experiments? Like the Oyster Card?

    Goldsmith will be more of Boris I suspect, minus the obsession with cycle lanes. He'll allow the accursed Garden Bridge to happen and probably commission a lot more high rise buildings and luxury apartments.

    Khan.

    Goldsmith forced the delay of the Heathrow expansion and wants to leave the EU.

    Like Boris, he doesn't care about London. It is just a publicity platform.

    Really? Reciting the Tories' election propaganda really explains why he's better. When Goldsmith was interviewed he didn't point out anything wrong with his policies, he just tried to set up McCarthyite hysteria about Khan and Corbyn.

    Sadiq polling well ahead atm. Not surprised, goldsmith is a poor candidate. Sadiq is actually talking about issues important to Londoners like housing, jobs and transport. Goldsmith is going on about leaving Europe, in the most pro EU city in the country.

    Unlike Boris though he's not particularly popular.

    Sadiq 'I'm a son of an immigrant' Khan will win hands down, not hard seeing as London is basically a Labour city.

    Indeed, it takes a very popular tory, like Johnson to win in London.
    Goldsmith quite simply has no where near Boris's popularity.

    So he's a better fit for the job than Zac "I'm a son of a billionaire" Goldsmith?

    Edit:

    The Conservative Party have been trying to split the South Asian vote by linking Goldsmith with the Indian president and attacking Khan... However they allegedly sent the same pro-Modi leaflets to over 120,000 Sikhs.

    I didn't think they could get more out of touch, but that's the CCHQ for you.

    The garden bridge is a good thing- increased Tourism in that area of London. So are high rise buildings and luxury apartments. We need more housing and luxury housing generates the highest profit margins- good for London's economy.
