I have warmed to Boris and cooled towards Ken personally.

There must be some Londoners out there

Keep Boris.
Loathe Ken and his weaselly face.

(Disclaimer- ex-Londoner, so don't have any say in this any more)

Keep Boris.

Ken comes across too often as an unapologetic bigot. And I'd trust Boris more on keeping down his share of the council tax.

It's strange isn't it. I was v disappointed when boris got in but have got used to him now.

Loathe Boris.

Apart from anything else, he's consistently shown that he's a very poor judge of character when it comes to appointing his deputies.

I'm voting for Ken. I do have reservations about him but I'm sick and tired of Boris and his clownish ways. It's all getting very tiresome.

Can't stand Boris, if all else fails I'll vote Ken but I want an independent mayor, they should be allowed to stand if they are members of political parties.

Ken - he really stands up for everyday Londoners. I remember him keeping the tube fares within reasonable limits when I first arrived in London.

I didn't vote for Boris last time, I'm not going to vote for him this time. I don't like him and I'd rather have Ken.

Boris- likely to spend less money

I'll be voting for Ken.

Boris. I like his bikes, and the fact that he got rid of those awful bendy buses.

SardineQueen Fri 02-Mar-12 17:59:28

I thought the bikes were an idea while Ken was in office and while the whole plan was being worked through the administration changed?

Ken. Though I go a bit weak at the knees with delight whenever I see one of those beautiful new routemaster buses. I know they've probably cost millions but I don't care. Something that right just can't be wrong.

Belated I know, should have proof read earlier but I meant they shouldN'T be allowed to stand if they are members of political parties.

Keep Boris the baffoon!! I can't stand Ken; he'd put everything up again!

I would vote for Boris, Ken is a nasty piece of work.

jumpingjackhash Fri 02-Mar-12 18:14:26

Boris. He's an idiot, but at least he's straight-forward in his idiocy and makes sense.

Plus I don't trust Ken to deliver on the promises he's making now - there's no way he can afford to do most of it, it just doesn't add up.

I want someone who will make my life better / easier, Boris kind of does that, Ken just won't.

tethersend Fri 02-Mar-12 18:22:50

Boris is no idiot.

It takes a shrewd and cunning man to get to such a position of power whilst appearing to be a passive buffoon.

Keep Boris.
