Boris in perspective

Wow, a huge turnout of just over 19.8k Londoners could care who the Tory mayoral candidate was. To give a little bit of perspective, my ward has just about as many constituents. So across the whole of London, only the same number who live in the square mile or so of Selly Oak expressed their preference of candidate.
Doesn't bode well for the real thing next year does it Boris?

Lets see, I, as a politically active Londoner didn't know when the primary was happening so didn't even know I could vote.

Given that, I doubt most of London knew that the vote was happening so a very low turnout should be expected. Plus the fact that we're expected to pay for the privilege of voting in what was frankly a foregone conclusion.

Nothing to learn about the actual election here then.

It seems a shame that the Tory/Labour choices for London Mayor are a racist, homophobic, xenophobic out-of-touch bigot (awww but he's so loveable so that makes it OK doesn't it); and somebody who pretends to be a socialist left-winger but seems to like being in the company of homophobic, anti-women nazis.

We appear to be a bit screwed.
