Green Party mayor???

I have a lot of sympathy with the Green Party, and I agree that London is more of a group of villages than an urban sprawl ,and I agree that we shouldn't be just squashing more and more people into london,and that regeneration is more about reviving local shops than building offices ,and recycling waste is important.

,but the mayor of London would have to support our Olympic bid.

And support the Arts and Culture .

I think the green party make a good pressure group ,but I don't know whether they would be right for mayor of London
I think who ever the next mayor of London is should take more notice of what the green party say

Grey party sounds like Ken Livingston to me

You'll miss Ken when he's gone. He is by far the most original thinker in local government. Not always right, but who is?

I'm with you Kevin. (Like all humans) Ken isn't always right, but so what.

And (like it or not) can you think of any other politician who has enough balls to implement something like the C-Charge (guaranteed to cause a lot of unpopularity)?

...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.

You obviously take a big interest in building/planning things, and I'm sure you're right in what you say. I'm not trying to say Ken is infallible (or even that he's right on most things) - just that sometimes you need to take unpopular decisions and that (compared to the other candidates last time) I just couldn't imagine any of them apart from Ken having the guts to do that.

sometimes you need to take unpopular decisions yes

some times the mayor needs to stand up to developers
