The Lewisham Mayoral Race

While the General Election date was only confirmed this week, the Mayoral election date has been known for a while, so it's worth reflecting on the results last time around, in 2006.

Mayor Bullock was elected with a comfortable majority, collecting 25,129 votes (after second preferences were counted) while his nearest rival was Christopher Maines for the LibDems, with 18,889 votes. These two were followed by the Conservatives, the Greens, John Hamilton as an independent and the Lewisham People's Alliance.

Those totals suggest the race will be a lot closer than in Lewisham Deptford.
