Ken in the lead for London Mayor (just)

Good news that YouGov opinion polls have Labour Candidate, Ken Livingstone in the lead . Only just (39% Ken and 37% Boris) but it seems that Londoners are beginning to get fed up with "out of touch" Old Etonian Millionaire, Boris Johnson and the Labour Fair Fares campaign is also making an impression on hard pressed commuters.

On Saturday 28th January, to mark 100 days to go, there is 100 campaign events in one day across London (see video). 

Check out Red Brick on role that the housing crisis in London has helped bring about this change.

Boris does not want to get re-elected. He want to go to Parliament.

Hi anon

I think he desperately wants to be re-elected as London Mayor and then also to be elected to Parliament i.e. he is not (and never had been) that interested in representing us.

In 2008 Boris resigned as MP for Henley, when he won the London Mayoral elections.

Hi anon 00.47

Err yes, but I don't think anyone doubts that eventually he wants to be back (as wanabee Tory leader).

Hopefully he can try for a Parliamentary by-election after May.
