    He should be good for a few comedy quotes. Apart from that not really interested.

    Very likely, he was a plant by the KGB years ago, before the end of the cold war. A sleeper. He should be watched carefully for Russian behavior, like eating beets excessively.

    Did you have any money on the outcome?

    I've wanted Ken out for a long time now, but this is just taking the piss.

    I know it's a semi-job, if that, and the powers of the mayoralty are limited, but it still seems rather disappointing how low the calibre of the candidates was. It would have been nice to have someone in there with a bit of ambition and dynamism - as far as I could tell Brian Paddick was the only one remotely fitting that description, but there you go, no-one's going to vote for a Lib Dem mayor it seems.

    Quite depressing really.
    But on the bright side maybe my Oyster card won't go up five percent above inflation for the next few years. Maybe.

    A week is a long time in politics!

    And thirty minutes is not that long, but still fairly significant. It works on a logarithmic scale, I think, or something...:confused:
