"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

London 2008

The candidates for next year's London Mayoralty elections have been announced and it's pretty much a re-run of 2008:

Boris Johnson, Conservative
Ken Livingstone, Labour
Brian Paddick, LibDems
Jenny Jones, Greens

Johnson is standing for re-election, which is fair enough, but to roll out the same tired, failed names from the past is simply an insult to voters. Is there no-one out there who'll drop their name into the hat and give Londoners a better option? What we're offered at the moment is no choice at all.
