    Anyone would better than Mr Khan. Mr Bailey looks like a bloody thoroughly decent chap.

    Definitly not Khan for me...seems he hasnt done much and avoids the questions such as how he is aiming to tackle scooter and knife crime
    His actions are going to cost me money when his traffic contol scheme comes through and the so called consultation was not that...except for you to stamp you agree with his scheme.

    I would vote for a candidate who promised to replace the social housing that was sold off in the 80's. I don't know what the answer to youth violence is but my personal feeling is that providing families somewhere decent to live, at a rent that they can afford, is a step in the right direction.

    I get the feeling the Tories are only going through the motions and are half hearted about it all as Khan's awful performance is good for them politically, and also not least as it won't be easy for the next Mayor to clean up Khan's mess.

    In essence, if crime is going through the roof and the Mayor is Labour, the Tories can always blame the Mayor and Labour.

    If crime is going through the roof and the Mayor is Conservative....oh dear....

    Tories building affordable homes? Pull the other one, there's far more profit in big "executive" homes, every time there's a new development round here it is for detached 4+ bedroom houses on the smallest plots they can get away with.

    Then again, Mayor of London, doesn't affect me who it is.

    Shaun Bailey is a good candidate. Succeeded in life from a difficult start. Was one of Boris' deputy mayors and did a good job.
