Now that the Conservative Party has decided to de-fund Shaun Bailey for being 'the worst candidate in history' it's time to ponder why the greatest city in the world manages only to attract the scrapings of the barrel to be its mayor.
Other UK cities manage to attract reasonable mayors: how is it London can only pull in the likes of Khan, Bailey, Fox and Rose?
Bailey has been consistently lampooned over the years by the Dame and the Steeples Times HERE
Yet, because he is black and misleadingly claimed to be 'from the ghetto', he enthralled the likes of Cameron and Johnson with his nonsensical views. It was patronising to think that because he was black, black voters would take him seriously.
The Dame had a sandwich with him years ago and thought him a total tosser.And, talking of tossers along comes Laurence Fox, a junior mummer, whose sole contribution to the London debate is to cover the city with statues of VC's....
So, that leaves us with the utterly hopeless 'Khan't do anything right'
It need not have been like this had the Conservative Party chosen someone of stature to win the Mayoralty.
