UK national politics remain a very sick joke.
So that’s two people with their own minds and personalities. An election where neither of the two leading candidates is a mindless party apparatchik.
Livingston has been one of the UK’s most effective politicians during his time in office. His most notable achievement is to have successfully taken on a powerful motoring lobby that had become the biggest single problem his city faced. This is in sharp contrast to our national politicians, who are slaves to the motoring lobby.
I don’t know that much about London’s government these days: it has no direct effect on me. But I expect both these candidates will have some interesting and worthwhile ideas. I shall watch with interest.
 Or rather the meeja who shamelessly back it. Note I didn’t say “motorists”: that would’ve pointed an accusing finger at the silent majority, who pointedly did not support the militant lobby.
