Question London Mayor hopeful Laurence Fox's seven key points in his manifesto pledge


Travel

London will open fully, finally and permanently on May 6th
There will be free transport for six months. A helping hand to get people back to work and play and a helping hand for small businesses cafes and coffee shops
Scrap the pollution-causing Low Traffic Neighbourhoods that have cut off homes and streets and discriminate against the most vulnerable in society.
All unnecessary cycle lanes will be removed.

Housing

As Mayor, Fox will build 250,000 houses over his four-year term.
A full audit of the green belt will take place. With precious landscapes preserved for eternity and unattractive scrubland transformed into beautiful and affordable housing

Policing

Fox will make London safe again by removing politics from policing.
He will end the policing of tweets and focus on real crime in London.
Petty crime will be dealt with firmly in a New York-style 'broken windows' policing strategy to serve as a reminder to more serious criminals that London will be a hostile environment for them.

Women

No woman will have to share a private bathroom or changing space with a man.
There will be three walls and a door between you and any man in London.
Hammersmith bridge

The bridge will be opened to pedestrians and cyclists by the end of the year and a full bridge solution implemented by 2024.

Entertainment

Every year there will be a Festival of London, where for one day every theatre ticket is free. We need to get the life blood of tourism flowing back into London.

Heritage

A Union Flag will fly outside every school in London. Children will be taught about the good that Britain has done in the past as well as the bad.
Any institutions that seek to undermine our shared culture via critical social justice and critical race theory will lose their funding in London. Our culture is a reflection of us all and must be protected with all our collective energy.

Difference being that Obama was already an elected congressman not a failed actor so not the best comparison.

Does he intend to actually do any governing or is he just trying to be a right wing media darling.,

Ok so which party do you think he'll represent or will he be an independent candidate? If he's going independent then he truly has no chance. Hence I'm questioning his motive cuz I dont see him representing Labour.

He's nothing more than a desperate talentless joke trying to hold onto to a miniscule fleeting sense of fame. Pathetic.

After just 4 weeks of campaigning, he's already become one of the frontrunners just behind the main 2 (Sadiq & Shaun)...

He started whining and hooting like a poundshop Katie Hopkins all over Social Media and now no one will hire him so now he has to do silly things like pretend he has a chance of becoming London mayor so that he can stay in the public eye and make money as a sad rightey socialite. It's hard to deem it an acting career success.

you have no idea what work he is being offered

you are guessing based on a dislike for his politics?
