Finally, a UK political campaign that I can actually get interested in, I may even join in some form of active campaigning should I ever find the time.
I’m a little mixed in my views on Ken, his pseudo-commie crap annoys me in terms of ties with Chavez; and his punish-the-wealthy rhetoric irks me no end. That said, he has a pretty good record when it comes to p!mping London internationally, and important things like promoting diversity. Professionally, his over-promotion of the buses is irritating because people think they can travel the length and breadth of London on one bus.
Boris amuses me, but more than that I agree with a large number of his policies and ideas, particularly his views on higher education. His bumbling persona usually hides a pretty sharp mind at work, and there’s an affability about him that appeals to me at base voter level.
So, should the hustings go well, bring it on!
