Even if Boris Johnson loses the Mayoralty he will still have his £250.000 a year chicken feed job for a few hours writting a week.

Video doesn’t explain clearly how to sack Boris Johnson.

From the cartoon, at the bit where they talk about “mayor vote 2″, it looks as if they are probably asking people to vote for Ken – that little red face with the grey hair is meant to be Ken, right? But whoever made this film doesn’t appear to feel comfortable actually asking people directly to vote for Ken. It sums up Labour’s problem in this election, sadly.

I’m not sure elections are about sacking people – aren’t you supposed to elect someone preferable?

And this is the positive, constructive part of the campaign. Can’t wait until the negative part begins!

The guy speaking sounds quite mockney, which is rather off putting.

I’d love to see the methodology for that “survey” showing that 100% of Londoners think that Boris is a tool.

If everyone in London hates him, he’s going to lose, right? That’s hardly a spur to get people out and voting for Ken.

A bunch of middle-class leftie undergraduates with ludicrous affected Mockney accents don’t want Boris in, and did an online poll which found 85% of their mates thought Boris was “an utter tool”.

And the rest of us are meant to care, why, exactly?

8. Not Livingstone

This video was made by Peter Tatchell’s campaign manager.

Ken Livingstone tried to destroy Peter Tatchell’s career. He didn’t get invited to conferences for about 5 years after Livingstone used public money to launch an attack on him, for his objections to Qaradawi.

Tatchell still supports him.

Why are so many on the left such idiots?

@ 8 Not Livingstone

“Why are so many on the left such idiots?”

Hard to say, given that your source for “so many on the left” consists of precisely one example, and that seems more like someone putting principles before personal feelings than idiocy to me.

But I’m sure you have a fascinating theory about why people who disagree with you are stupid. Do tell.

An evocative collection of pictures portraying aspects of Lunatic London:

“Sunny is currently explaining on Twitter that despite being a Labour Party member, he’s planning to put the Green candidate as his number one choice . . .”

Isn’t that grounds for expulsion? The ballot is secret – or supposed to be since the 1872 act – but actually advocating voting for another party is another matter.

As for me, I admit that I couldn’t stand Blair and all that “I’m your strong leader” stuff or the insipid sycophancy of ministers during the first Blair government. It was no surprise to me that Blair as PM lost 4 million votes for the Labour Party between the 1997 and 2005 elections and that the turnout at elections sank to historic lows for the post-war period.

The Budget was a public relations failure. However, miilionaires and other top people, such as NHS chiefs, were unconcerned about the 50 % top tax rate, as they get their incomes paid through legal tax wheezes, such as setting up their own firm to pay salaries in to. The 50 % tax cut to 45 % will benefit many families in the middle classes, and also the odd millionaire with a conscience.

The so-called Granny tax was only a way to show pensioners they are not a special case. Why give them a special tax allowance?. I shall lose mine, but do not resent it at all. My grandchildren will pay £ 9000 a year to get a degree, which I got for just living costs.

The Granny tax is nothing of the sort. It just removes the special allowances for the over 65s. I lose it, but cannot resent that. My grandchildren will pay £ 9000 a year for a degree, but I got mine almost for free. Is that fair?
