Alea iacta est

For Ken and Boris, the die is cast, at least since 10pm last night, for the race to be London's Mayor.

Unless a miracle happens, it seems that the incumbent Ken Livingstone is set to pack his bags. Evening Standard seems to suggest that Boris' lead is quite substantial. In fact, Boris has been busy getting himself drunk at a private party drowning himself after 6 months of self imposed soberness.

What's interesting is that there's a security team standing by. Their sole responsiblility is to escort the incumbent Mayor out of his office (should he lose) and make sure that he doesn't remove any document before handing the keys to the incoming Mayor.

Eastopper (another Singaporean in London) has also cast his vote for his London Mayor. Am now wondering who he has voted for.

lol, I don't think you voted for the Buffoon did you?

Well, he's not banning alcohol from buses and Tube. I would say that it's the right direction.

He is in fact banning the booze on LT.. good idea but who will police it? If you were to see ppl drinking booze would you have the guts to tell them stop? I know I wouldn't!!

That's a major concern, no doubt. Perhaps he should boost the ranks of Transport Police then?
