Weekly catchup 7th-13th April

Welcome to our once-a-week post pointing you to the best of posts from last week.

The London Mayoral election keep us busy in the comments this week. We changed our poll to ask who, if anyone, LDV readers would back for their second preference. Hot debate ensued there, as well as in the follow-up to a post from Peter David who let us know who he’d be backing and why it grated. We reported on the Newsnight mayoral hustings – and told you about the three Youtubers who put up Boris’s evasion. We also brought you Paddick’s latest party election broadcast and showed you his new website.
