You can build your own ideal London mayor here by selecting your favourite policies: http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/inte ... te-chooser

At the end it tells you from which candidate the policies you picked are from. Quite interesting. Have a go!

I was 50% Green Jenny, 30% Ken and 20% Brian. Happily no Boris :wink:

    Your mayor is...

    60% Brian Paddick
    20% Jenny Jones
    10% Boris Johnson
    10% Ken Livingstone

    Boris on Police (hangs head in shame), my defence is that the Tories are meant to be good on crime.

    To be honest I would happily see London made into a separate country though.

    Glad I don't live in London! :lol:

    TBH, many of the answers seemed pretty interchangeable anyway.......

    Here you go, I'm amazed that Ken appears to have some policies worth considering!
    40% Boris Johnson
    20% Ken Livingstone
    20% Brian Paddick
    20% Jenny Jones

    I was 40% Paddick, 30% Ken, 20% Jenny Jones, 10% Boris.

    But it wasn't quite fair wih me, since I knew which policy correlated with who - i tried to be as honest to myself as possible.


    But yeah, people slate Paddick and are unlikely to vote for him, but on the policy front he's probably alright ;).

    Paddick couldn't police his own garden. The higher they get all most of them worry about is the next rank and sticking to whatever budget they're running. They become managers not police officers.

    Just realised I won't bother voting.

    All the statements are just politician waffle. More police, lower fares, more trees... yada, yada, yada.
    Nothing gets done. Our hard earned money gets wasted on nonsense. Every single time.

    I'll be honest, trying to persuade you was pretty low on my priority list. Somewhere marked 'waste of time'. :P

    Do you spend your non cycling time getting photographed pointing at stuff for the tragic LD newsletters

    Must be fun having a scumbag for your party leader.

    Absolute respect for getting involved with politics and such - but the Lib Dems - really?!

    I'll take H'Angus, former Mayor of Hartlepool instead, please. Rather than ending up with the mixture of a few monkeys, I'll just start with one.
