The inimitable

Boris Johnson: My traffic wardens will save all

" 'I've lost count of the number of people who have told me they're staunch Labour supporters but they're backing me,' he says. ... He doesn't think his Eton background is a disadvantage. 'People in London don't give a monkey's where you're coming from. They want to know about your ideas.' " (Telegraph)

Plenty of laughs further down in that article. How could anybody think of voting for that monstrous bore Livingstone, when they could have Boris in charge? It would be like electing Robert Maxwell instead of ... er, Boris Johnson.

He is also looking closely at such things as why over 200 people in London Transport earn over £100,000 per year. He has some great policies, like an amnesty for illegal immigrants who have been here for years, and turning traffic wardens (actually now officially called "Civil Enforcement Officers") into helpers of the public and giving them awards of theatre tickets etc. (Nobody only Boris would have come up with that one.)

This is a creative city, not a warmongers fellow traveller/ bureaucrat's grubby and dowdy office. Boris consistently writes and speaks out from and for Humanity (something Livingstone knows zero about, being some sort of sun-hatched alien spawn) and against the Iraq war. So you know what you have to do.
