I'm starting to consider how to vote in the mayoral election

I Like Goardon Brown , but Im not voting for Ken Livingston.

I'll ether vote for the liberal democratic candidate or for Boris I'm not a conservative but some of Borises comments are

He says
We seem to be in the grip of barbarians who are determined to knock down venerable buildings - Victorian police stations and swimming baths - when people's instinct is to preserve and restore.

And even when the case for demolition is irresistible we seem too often to put drab and featureless blocks in their place.

I have to agree.

You're going to vote for Boris Johnson or Brian Paddick!
Boris is a buffoon and Paddick has the same chance as Simon Hughes - zero.
As for Sian Berry (a green London is a more affordable London), no chance.
It's another term for Ken. He may not come across as the most agreeable and charismatic person but he makes a decision, sticks to it, and gets things done.
London needs a decision maker and less of time wasting quangos, forums, discussion groups and consulting every Tom, Dick and Harry about every issue.
Elect an intelligent decision maker and allow him/her to make them.

and Brian Paddick Is very media friendly.

I've already made up my mind.
I'm voting for Councillor Richard Barnbrook, the leader of the BNP group on Barking & Dagenham council.He is the party's candidate for Mayor in the London elections taking place on 1 May 2008..

Phoney is spot on. Leadership is a rare quality; the cult of personality traded on by BoJo et al is no substitute. I know what you mean re 8 years of someone being enough BP, but doesn't that policy have a couple of problems? One - you need a credible replacement (I don't see one). Two - entities like London are so complex that it can take more than 8 years to get major things properly in train.

As for our built heritage Micky, why not bring your views along to this debate?
