Lewisham voted for the wrong person to be Mayor. Why preserve the status quo when you could have somebody who genuinely cares about the borough and wants to drive it forward rather than let it stagnate?
Five more years of Bullocks!

Now Lewisham's population is predominantly ethnic-'minority', Labour don't even have to lift a finger.

Even worse Labour had won on postal votes alone before the polling stations even opened!

This is why Labour introduced uncontrolled mass immigration. Mass Labour votes!

You never said a truer word.....such a sad state of affairs, when voting is now being corrupted by certain parties. I wonder whether investigations into this will take place? I spose not.
