The 'Others' outpolling the Lib Dems = LOL.

To be fair we should probably acknowledge that the lack of a candidate handicaps the Libdem performance in polls at the moment. On the other hand I do hope the Libdems get  blown apart in this election.

Automatic expulsion only happens when a breach of the rules is formally noticed. Livingstone can (and presumably will, if it comes to it) argue that he was merely campaigning for Labour voters to give Rahman their second preferences. Which is dishonest, but he'll probably get away with it.

Livingstone has released the following statement:

Quote
"I am disappointed by the way the NEC handled the selection in Tower Hamlets and I am sure that under Ed Miliband's leadership things would have been handled differently.

'However, my position is clear: I fully support Labour candidates in all elections and I am calling for Tower Hamlets residents to use their first preference vote for our candidate Helal Abbas.

'A second preference should be used for Lutfur Rahman to keep the Tories out."

Aha. What Rahman is depends on who you ask. A neutral description would be that he's a minority-community machine politician with clear religious influences.

Dust? Where?

Anyways, many things have happened in London since this thread was last posted in. We all know what they are already though.

Why bump the thread now? Because the LibDems have selected their candidate. Results are as follows:

Brian Paddick 1,527
Mike Tuffrey 1,476

First round results were:

Brian Paddick 1,289
Mike Tuffrey 1,232
Brian Haley 316
Lembit Ípik 252

The BBC headline is somewhat misleading ('Brian Paddick beats Lembit Opik in Lib Dem London mayor vote') but includes the following gem:

Quote
Mr Opik said: "I think like every great politician you have to have some wilderness years. Nelson Mandela had them. Many other people had them."

yes, but Opik would've struggled to manage fourth.

Speaking of which, Jenny Jones AM is the Green nominee, Barnbrook has been kicked out of the bnp, but any news on their candidate or others further down the list?

There cannot have been a by-election here, as I didn't see an Andrew Teale writeup on it. Or else that by-election's validity should be challenged on the grounds that it was held without Andrew's written approval

Is it too late to find some way of replacing Livingstone with Lammy? Not that I have much trust in ComRes or even really in polls of London elections, but if over 10% of 2010 Labour voters are thinking about voting for Johnson... er... no, that is not good.
