Personally I don't like any of the candidates but am firmly in the anybody but Zac Goldsmith camp , Goldsmith was a non-domicile before he decided politics was his calling , is another of the 1% and is sitting on an estimated £1.2bn .... Another toff with no idea of the real world.

Sadiq Khan is a Blairite but even so I'd rather see him Mayor than Goldsmith , plus it's another blow for Cameron and that's always a good thing in my book.



Mr Khan, who would be the city's first Muslim mayor, is on course for victory over Conservative Zac Goldsmith.
The result would bolster leader Jeremy Corbyn after Labour were beaten into third in Scotland by the Tories and lost English councillors. In Scotland, the SNP said it would form a minority government after winning its third election in a row in Scotland.

Scotland has traditionally always been conservative with a small c, remember not that long ago the Tories had quite a lot of Westminster seats up here.

And the Tories were the only party marketing themselves as the party of the Union, so a lot of the people who didn't want the SNP to hold another independence referendum had no choice but to vote for the Tories.

Well I would have some reservations there, let's not forget we are about to be forced to vote on the EU, which means that both Labour and Conservative insist it be a free vote, but at the same time, we have little media coverage as to how both those parties see things percentage wise, everybody has adopted the STFU policy except for the few at the top of the pile. that's something you just can't ignore. Labour man Sadiq Khan is pro EU union for instance, while Goldsmith is a Euroskeptic..er, he thinks.

So Labour and Conservative in England, have both clearly some differences in their parties over the EU union, and that union, in any which way, clearly affects the union of the UK as to it's sovereignty ultimately. The SNP in Scotland are pro EU, so that also lessens their own independent stance also.
Independents in Northern Ireland got stuffed this time around in the local elections by all the main fascist led parties, however Independents here have become a total different aspect of politics, nothing to do with any kind of borders, some of them pretty good, sad really. But that's by the way.
