Never have I been less interested in an election than that of the London Mayor on whenever it is. Boris Johnson proved beyond all doubt that listening to pre-election promises is a total waste of time. I think I gave him my second preference vote last time but that was back in the days when I was still clinging on to my Conservative roots. I know better now and have come to the conclusion that they are all as bad as each other except that those who associate themselves with Bexley Council must be slightly worse.
Despite my disinterest I felt in principle that I should attend any candidate events held locally although in practice that has so far come to nothing.
I went to Bexleyheath three Wednesdays ago on what turned out to be a wild goose chase. I had been told that Sadiq Khan (Labour) was going to be there but he wasn’t. In doing so I missed the Zac Goldsmith (Conservative) event in Erith.
When Sadiq Khan went to Sidcup last week it was for nine o’clock and that time is just about impossible from Abbey Wood. However maybe I will be luckier next Monday.
I have been informed that the UKIP candidate Peter Whittle will be at Sidcup station at nine on the 25th and two hours later by the Clock Tower in Bexleyheath. I have no idea what he is all about apart from the obvious but I will go to size him up. A local man so can’t be all bad.
