A woman outside a polling station in Moscow told me yesterday, that she didn't think it would matter if Sobayanin won honestly in the city's mayoral elections, whose results were released this morning, because "no one will believe it anyway."
Tomorrow us Londoners have to choose who will be our Mayor for the next four years. As a green I wish Jenny Jones was heading for a huge victory but I am realistic and know that a strong vote for green candidates in the London assembly is probably the best we can hope for this time around.
Throughout last year, I regarded Boris Johnson as the likeliest winner of London’s coming mayoral election. YouGov and other pollsters showed consistently that around one-in-five Labour supporters would desert Ken Livingstone and vote for Boris. Our latest poll tells a different story.
