Reasons to vote for Ken, no.4

Because Boris Johnson's social policies would hurt ordinary Londoners and only benefit the rich few.

Sample Boris quotes:
  • Writing in his Spectator days: "both the minimum wage and the Social Charter would palpably destroy jobs."[source] The reality: London's economy has thrived under the minimum wage.
  • From the same era: "If NHS services continue to be free in this way, they will continue to be abused, like any free service. If people have to pay for them, they will value them more."[source] Well, maybe they would value them more, but lots of them would die first.
More from UKWatch, Paul Owen, yourfriendinthenorth, Johan Hari.
