There are still 586 days to go until the next London Mayoral election.

Ken v Boris
One useless charlatan and one dynamic saviour.
You get to decide which is which, and vote accordingly.
Boris v Ken

There's only one centreground hope could tear this battle apart.
Ken v Boris v Floella

And who wouldn't like to see a Play School presenter opening the 2012 Olympics?
