Brian Paddick

The electoral debate lasts half an hour and can be seen by dialing and thence by opting for the entry: London mayoral debate on Ken Livingstone, labour Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, conservative candidate for said Office, and Brian Paddick, who wants to be the first liberal Mayor of London, clashed before the cameras on April 8. The discussion focused on two points: transport and crime. England have, in this respect, a very different system from the rest of the world. In London all buses are red and accept passes and routes drawn up by the Mayor’s Office and the vast majority are of two floors. London with Ken was a pioneer worldwide to introduce a toll to get all cars entering the Center pay a high rate for polluting. This measure Ken boasts of having reduced the traffic of trucks and having done Londoners to return in mass public transport or bicycle.

While in the Americas many can have licenses to carry weapons and police officers walk with guns, in Britain it is forbidden to walk even with knives of cooking on the streets and only police takes wives or canes, but no firearm. Conservatives attack hard to Livingstone by having eliminated the previous buses double-decker on whose back the users could skip without passing by passing through a door and entered buses of a floor, but two carriages together like an accordion. While Johnson blames them to these deaths have occurred, Livingstone denied this although he has agreed to go by removing this new fleet. While the tories want to return to the previous open traditional double-decker buses, the Liberals intend to widely extend the trams that are successful in the extreme zone South London (especially in Croydon and Wimbledon). More spicy is the question of toll to congestion (Congestion Charge) that Liberals and conservatives want to cut (eliminating its extension to the Centre-West) and Livingstone wants to keep and, moreover, wants to deepen penalised with 25 ($50) to all 4 X 4 auto or consumer of much oil that enters that zone.
