Like Ken the c***, the only thing he's done is cost me money.

And possibly be even smarmier in the process.

 


Optimistic as ever

BTW, Cucking, I’m loving your ‘location’. I used to love reading the Molesworth books, and still pull them out of the cupboard under the stairs from time to time. Maybe SP needs to read ‘How to be topp’

Anyway, I digress. I don’t like the current London Mayor either.

Can anyone tell me what has Mr Khan actually done as London Mayor.

I just saw him on the BBC in Berlin. He comes across as an absolute fake who is just taking a pay cheque and we already have plenty of those on all "sides".

I do remember him promising lots of new homes, has building started?

The only thing I know that he has done recently, is make traffic lights stay longer on red. As did Ken, to make it look like congestion was worst than it was, just prior to rolling out the C charge. Why he is doing that again now is beyond me.

I find it hard to think of anyone who is more of a total waste of space then he is.

I genuinely would like someone to give me an alternative opinion on the Mayor of London, as I actually forgot he was The Mayor.

That was an Evening Standard story, so you don't know it, you think it. Maybe you should apply a bit of quality control on the information you receive. Perhaps its time that you got a bit angry with people who lie to you and are taking you for a propaganda sponge.

"I find it hard to think of anyone who is more of a total waste of space then he is." Perhaps the best time to pose this question is the next time you shave? Why don't you stand for a Councillor and have a go yourself?

"I genuinely would like someone to give me an alternative opinion on the Mayor of London, as I actually forgot he was The Mayor." What is the point? I cannot tell you what you want to hear.

All the best.

Ah yes, the old traffic light misdirection story. It seems so long ago yet the lie persists.

Whereas Boris was great - and only wasted

£300m on the new Bus
£30m on the Garden Bridge vanity project
£10m on the Estuary Airport
£24m on the Cableway
£230 on the London Stadium that was given to his mates at West Ham
£4.5m on the New Crystal Palace
The Developer deals is unquantifiable as is the money lost by `winding up' the unions to further his ideological ends.

No one is Smarmier than the Boris Calamity vanity project. Funny how his ideology of not wasting public money has never prevented him wasting public money. But I suppose you could argue that he never "wastes" public money if it enriches his mates.

There are a lot of things that the Mayor is not responsible for so I can understand why any Mayor wanting to make an impact with the voters look to vanity projects.

You forgot to mention cycle lanes which has brought London to a standstill Boris started it and Khan has just played along.

Some of Boris' ideas could have worked with better planning and less public money.

An iconic bus to replace the route master which is known around the world would not be a bad thing.

I quite liked the idea of a garden bridge but he should have picked on an exiting one and tarted it up or built a new one when people wanted it.

A cable car across the Thames would work but the current one starts and goes to places the public don't want or need to go to.

A new airport to replace Heathrow had a lot of merit we need 5 runways to cope with capacity a 3rd runway just kicks the can down the road.

For me the role of Mayor is fix transport and to rubber stamp ideas that will attract tourism such as the wheel at Parliament. Other than that I would prefer they but out.

 


One more point

I'm sure that all of us can agree that Boris was crap in the job but the thread isn't about him.

 


It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.

A good and far more reasonable post about Johnson's tenure.

Personally I regarded him as correct on the airport and I also thought the bridge was and is a good idea.

I was informed SK was one of the briefs that defended the London bus/tube bombers.
Is this true or just myth?

 


Kids,tired of being bothered by your pesky parents?
Then leave home, get a job & pay your own bills, while you still know everything.

Sadiq Khan at one time acted as a lawyer for the Nation of Islam...He did end up representing the early terrorist version of Maajid Nawaz and others.

I don't think the 7/7 stuff is true....Rather amusingly he spent most of his legal career taking cases against the Met Police.

He's hardly the best example we have to lead security in London.....He's an anti establishment figure who decided to become apart of it.

Like most minority politicians he plays the wearing of two hats.

Yes, I'm no Lefty, but didn't Ken make promises and ... err... keep pretty much all of them?

Boris is 2 things: charming and electable. Otherwise, something of an empty suit.

You may need to expand on where the problem lies in this.

Poacher turned gamekeeper can be both good and bad.

Also, you love our culture and values. They include the right to legal representation. That's everyone, Stirling, from West to Brady to suspected terrorists.

It could be said that he took these "unpopular" instructions and then stood for high office. Would you have respected him more had he refused the briefs to avoid staining his embryonic political career?
