I had a whole post about tomorrow's elections up my sleave, but time is running out.
Casino Avenue reports on crap canvassing in Charlton and Tory grins in Eltham North and Peninsula
Councillor Alyson McGarrigle appears to have absolutely no politics, honestly.
If I lived in Telegraph Hill or Brockley itself (rather than neighbouring Crofton Park), I'd be backing the Socialist Green Unity Coalition - or rather, excellent local councillors Chris Flood and Ian Page, plus Jessica Leech, a woman known for her integrity as an activist in Deptford (Socialist Party candidates) and Toby Abse, loveable if wacky leftie.
Can I stomach voting for Steve 'Bloke' Bullock as Mayor, after all the crap decisions he's made re swimming pools, schools, Convoys, etc? But can I stomach a Lib Dem or Tory mayor as a result of not voting for him? I'm going to vote independent first choice, and hold my nose and go Bullock second preference.
Make sure George Galloway's fascist-Trot alliance doesn't get in - vote Labour (early, but not often). Especially if you live in Shadwell. (Blog links: Justify This, Make My Vote Count.)
