It's not all bad news...

Yes, London may have a mayor Boris, which is a horrifying thought, but there is a little good news that you might not have heard: the two Greens on the London Assembly, Jenny Jones and Darren Johnson, held their seats, with an identical percentage of the vote to last time, which means 43,000 more people voted Green on the Assembly list. It was the Lib Dem vote that got caught in the two-party crunch, and they lost two seats on the Assembly, their vote falling to 11.22% (from 18.09%).

(With thanks, and apologies, to Natalie Bennett's Philoblibon. A full breakdown, and analysis, of the London vote can be found over on The Daily Maybe)
