  • What a farce this has been.

    The mayoral candidate should have been the top of the list to drive the list vote up.
    The lower list candidates should also have been constituency candidates to get them out campaigning.

    And it should all have been completed over a year ago.

    The London Region review after the last election was a total disaster.

    Can I appeal for some serious exciting candidates to step forward. If we have to have a candidate no-one has heard of can we at least have someone whos not white, male & middle aged ?

    whoever stands/is selected must put housing as their number 1 political priority. the age at which the average earner in london can afford a deposit for, and pay the mortgage of, an averagely-priced property in london is now 52. yes, 52 years old. People often say crime is their number 1 issue – but the reality is that it has been falling for years. house prices, by contrast, have been rising – even the recession only caused a slight fall in prices, which has now been erased by recent increases.

    Housing, housing housing. Can you hear me, Lembit/all the others?
