Default A vote for Boris is a vote for change...

OK, so mainly applicable to the crazy folk who live in London, some how i missed this article on the MAG website:

http://mag.qtweb.co.uk/en/newsdetail/a6554

seems despite the conclusive evidence supporting the idea, ken "i'm a ****ing retard" livingstone has said no, apparently preconceived opinion and flawed methodology prevail over empirical observation and open-mindedness...

In a related note, Boris did say a while back that he would support motorcycle use of bus lanes:

http://mag.qtweb.co.uk/en/newsdetail/a6529


of course none of this affects me personally, but red ken is such a tosspot that hopefully this should swing a few votes to old Bojo

I can't Vote in London - But I would vote for Boris!

His Policies? I don't care! - I like the bloke and would be quite happy to spend an evening down the Pub with him.

Plus, he will be Britains representative at the Beijing Olympics when the "torch" is handed over on behalf of London 2012. Boris will be the public face of Britain to litterally the entire international community......man, yer can't buy that sh#t!!!

Can you imagine the thoughts of Chairman Brown / ZANU Labour on that? Probably unprintable!!

In 5 years time Boris could be PM!

As an adopted Yorkshireman on one level I couldn't give a toss...

But Ken has said no to bikes in bus lanes while Boris has said yes.

However Boris is a complete and utter prat and Ken has done some good things e.g. congestion charge, proportion of affordable housing. But I go for Boris as it's about time wealth was switched to the north and I have every confidence he'll c*ck it up if elected.

Kens had his run, and in all fiarness someone else needs a punt.

Out of the candidates, BoJo is the only real option at the moment, all the others have hidden agendas, i fear.

Sorry, but whats good about the congestion charge exactly? Sure traffic calmed down for a month or so, but its back worse than before, and trying to get it raised to 25???? And also trying to possibly charge bikes???

In place, bendy busses, great, put total fools behined even bigger bus wheels in the city...
