Voters! Build your own London mayor!

Posted by MereNews On April - 27 - 2012

You’ve heard of Build-a-Bear. Course you have! Now, thrillingly, a crack team of Guardian geniuses has assembled an online machine for building a “custom mayor” for London based on your pick from a range of policy pledges. I’ve already had a go and duly produced a centre-left bricolage comprising 50% Green Jenny Jones, 30% Red Ken Livingstone and 20% Yellow Brian Paddick. That’s a little more Brian than I am in real life and a little less Ken, but the basic pattern is bang on. Sorry Boris, by the way.

In truth, I’m not a typical mayor builder. After months of covering the campaign I’m only too familiar with just about every policy position the mayor machine offers its users, so the outcome was unlikely to surprise me. You, though, are almost certain to be fresher, sweeter and more innocent than I in every way. So go on – give the mayor machine a try.
