Jackie - do I sense that you have your tongue pressed very firmly into your cheek?
My impression, after much consideration, is that Mr Livingstone hitches his bandwagon to whatever cause/topical issue he feels will give him maximum publicity. Refer to the Thread I started on Tooley Street
Red Route - Mr Livingstone attaches his title 'Mayor of London' to many advertising/information issues. The Mayor of London (on billboards)tells us that 3 out of 4 London buses have cameras which record the movements of traffic - how many illegally parked Tour Coaches in Tooley Street
have been fined? I have yet to receive a response from Transport for London (another organisation Mr Livingstone closely affiliates his Office with)despite numerous requests over several years. The Mayor of London tells us that illegally parked vehicles cause 'Needless Jams' - so how many of the above mentioned Tour Coaches have been fined?
This morning at 7H, Mrs Paul and I were woken by a transporter vehicle delivering Black Cabs - parked on the Tooley Street
Red Route, the lorry was blocking the Bus Stop and Cycle Lane - residents have repeatedly complained about this - Mr Livingstone turns a blind eye.
If Mr Livingstone was to begin with issues on his own doorstep instead of hitching onto the Lap Dancing (oh, do I see an easy 'cause' with maximum publicity?) issue, then I might pay more attention to him.
Incidentally Mr Livingstone, Mrs Paul (who hails from Beijing) won't be giving you a vote since your overtly crass comment that the outlawing of foot-binding in China justified the Mao Tse Tung era.
