Here's a poser for Labour folk in London...

Now, it's completely unscientific, atypical and you can draw no firm conclusions from it. but here's a screen grab from the House of Twits poll on 'Who do you want for London Mayor'?

Now, Boris clearly in the lead. But essentially Paddick and Livingstone neck and neck.

Now, given its a STV election: Just supposing - with his support plummeting currently - Livingstone comes third, and its a stand off between Brian and Boris. Who will Labour supporters have put second?

I would suggest it's far more likely to be Brian. Which means they could (not on the figures above, obviously, but close to them) put our Brian into City Hall.

It's a stretch, I know.

But Mr Paddick is running an exceptionally good campaign....and Ken most certainly is not....


  1. Unfortunately, I suspect Labour voters will generally choose to either 2nd preference the Greens or not put a at all. Still, it will be interesting to see what transpires...

  2. Yes, greens formally agreed to 2nd preference Ken yesterday. Could be interesting in the run off if the winner - most likely Boris - ends up with less than 50% of the vote in a STV election...

    1. I think within hours of you writing that comment, the Greens did it again!
