Is Boris Goodenough? Still waiting.

More reaction to the UK local government elections:

UPDATE: It's 7.30pm. Still no result, but a strong presumption that Boris will triumph. Since it's on my doorstep, I nipped down to poke around. I just took this shot of a tiny Anarchist demo in front of City Hall. I chatted with a grungy anarchist from Sweden, but his thinking conformed to liberal/socialist/anarcho sterotype: little verbal tricks trotted out instead of thought. Honestly, there should be no representation without taxation and no right to vote for childless under 25's either (military excepted).

UPDATE:  Boris has won!

Is Boris Goodenough?

The votes are still being counted to elect the next Mayor of London. It's between Red Ken and Blonde Boris. Ken can only hang on by virtue of a high turnout of the Islamic block vote. Boris would increase the gaiety of nations and scrape away some of the pc gunge that infects politics.

Most results are in from the rest of the country's local government contests. Labour's getting trashed by the Conservatives, a good omen for Boris, but very, very bad for Gordon Brown. Brown may be defenestrated over the next few months to be replaced by David Miliband, boy wonder Foreign Secretary. It looks a dead cert that within 2 years we'll have a Conservative government led by the world-class creep, David Cameron.

I took this snap of the top of City Hall from my living room just now. Near top right there's an interview being shot. I can watch it simultaneously on tv.

Here's a Boris clip to while away the tense hours. Hilarity starts 3 minutes in:
