Conti Running For London Mayor

Scottish actor TOM CONTI has put himself forward as a candidate for the London mayoral election in 2008. The SHIRLEY VALENTINE star plans to topple current Labour office-holder KEN LIVINGSTONE as a Conservative Party candidate, even though he isn't a supporter of the opposition party. Conti is convinced he is the man to take London forward, and is building a manifesto to oust Livingstone, who has held the powerful position since his original election in 2000. He says, "I'm not a Conservative, and I'm not Labour (ruling party) either - I'm not anything. I don't know much about the present Conservative Party, but DAVID CAMERON (party leader) seems a decent fellow. "And if they were interested in talking then of course I'd be interested in listening. Everything is negotiable in life. "I'm irritated about what's happening in London - the fact that people no longer come here. London is a wonderful city, it's a huge commercial sector, and without the commerce I'm afraid it will fall to bits. "That's what's happening now. The Americans aren't coming because of the high pound against the dollar."

hello. is there anyone out there,, are we going to have a mayor for london that thinks and is with us,,you certainly complain when charges are above the belt,,so do something now vote for tom tom he is good and cares about what is happening in london..or do you want soviet state and or police state we are already on camera,,,remember the book 1984 and animal farm by george orwell, ifyou dont i suggest you read it. its actually fascinating. and no i am not a bookseller, just trying to make pointso do you want to change he system or not, if not then please continue paying the gla tax and let red ken do what he likes to you, and dont forget somewhere near you a congestion charge will be coming and soon, it actually is not important where you live ,it is what red ken can screw you for that is why his building cost us the gla payer a hefty 70 million pounds..WHY .. ALSO consider the fact that people living in sutton, surrey actually come under the borough of london and have to pay this gla cost plus their council tax and are not even considered a voter as we found out after living there for some years. we were never sent forms to agree or diagree,of course others may disagree, but is fact that people living there did not vote because the opportunity was not available to them at the time due to a clerical error or whatever, i do know that i personally did not receive it and if i had i would have complained there and then. so can we have some comments from you all who support me and my quest to rid london and the surrounding boroughs of this evil meglamanic, almost similar to adolf hitler.
