After the scrum of media which followed the election results things seem to be working towards some sort of normality here at City Hall.
I spotted Boris coming in on his bicycle, without a media tail, much to the surprise and delight if London Bridge commuters, who smiled and waved as he went past. We had a quick chat about what to wear while cycling to work, Boris wears a suit I tend to go for sports wear.
Over the next few days we will complete the process of allocating committees and areas of responsibility. And I’ll try to get through the thick pile of reading that has been put into my in tray for the Assembly’s Annual Meeting on Friday.
Having not learned that publicity for the BNP gives them votes, Labour look as though they plan to use Richard Barnbrook as a political football. While on BBC Radio London on Sunday Labour’s Jeanette Arnold took great delight in saying that “You will be voting with the BNP against me becoming Chair of the Assembly”.
She just doesn’t get it! Firstly she seems not to have noticed that we did rather well at the last set of elections which means that we do not need the support of the BNP. Secondly, if Labour insist on playing petty games like this they will be the ones who lose out. It is their constituencies which provide the BNP with most support.
