Boris wins

Yay. Boris Johnson has been re-elected Mayor of London, beating the loathsome Ken Livingstone. is despite a big backlash against the and Lib Dems. Labour picked up almost 800 Council in a good night for them. The UK Independence Party also polled well.

The first round saw Boris get 44.9% and Livingstone 41.1%. After preferences were re-allocated it was 51.5% to 48.5%.

Ken Livingstone in his concession speech said that result settles the next leadership contest for the Conservative Party, and think he is right. When Cameron’s time is up, Boris will have huge support to take the job.
