Livingstone confirmed as Labour candidate for Mayor

Well I don't have a vote, but I would vote for him as Mayor if I did.

I have lots of criticisms of Ken, and no illusions, but what's the alternative? Voting Respect?

The Tories may be scrabbling around trying to find a candidate, even considering 'sharing' one with the Lib Dem s(!!), but they could very well win if Respect stands .

On balance I would rather see Livingstone back than the Tories in charge of London, even with his many faults.
