True Michael. It's a weak spot of his. But have you heard the other candidates say they would throw themselves under the earth-movers? I don't think so. Picture Steve Norris turning his back on his party's natural supporters - including Lord Ashcroft, the money behind London Town plc, who are trying to blot out our block with their Tate Tower.

with you again Kevin. Steven Norris was exactly who I had in mind when I was thinking about [not] having the guts to take any hard decisions.

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

I had noticed on Simon Hughes' website
under Policies for London - Planning and Development

"reject Londonwide high rise in favour of maximum development of existing brownfield and commercial sites"

Ken is the best thing that has happened to London for many years. He has the balls to stick to his principles and always puts Londoners first.

put Berkely homes first more like it


According to William Hill bookmakers, Simon Hughes, the Liberal Democrat candidate, is now in second place with odds of 6/1 to win

It has become quite clear that Ken livingston doesn't give a damn about ordinary Londoners ,and is only interested in coseing up to property developers ,and is supporting every bad development Like the waterloo offices ,which will be visible from St. James's park and spoil the view from the London eye, the Tate Modern flats ,Leeching of a public amenity and vandalizing views of the iconic bank side power station(Tat Modern) and the appareling Potters fields development. which will look like the Barbican Center ,by Tower Bridge
I think Simon Hughes would take a more balanced view of these things and has a far greater public service ethos

Ken livingston is only interested in himself.

Ive lost track of the planning process concerning the Shard of Glass. Does anyone know if it has been given full approval, and if it has if a new mayor could revoke that approval?

Its been given full aproval ,as far as I know

I dont mind the shard of glass so much ,at leest it looks nice ,and the building that will be demolished to build it isen't ,good

its just to big big thats all,

I dont think a new mayor could do anything about it

the main problem is if its uesd to push through other towers around it

that would be a night mayor

'that would be a night mayor'

Difficult to tell with your spelling whether you meant it, Michael, but that was quite funny!
