London mayoral race: BOJO still king of City Hall

The Conservative mayoral incumbent Boris Johnson has bucked a national trend that yesterday witnessed a significant shift to the left and in doing so trumped the labour challenger, Ken Livingstone by 62,000 votes. In an election race that was labelled as more of a personality contest, Boris Johnson has secured a mandate for another four years at City Hall, but more tellingly the eccentric incumbent has gained a stamp of approval and secured a credibility that is prompting some commentators to suggest that Johnson could make a move back to mainstream politics and prove a formidable contender for the future leadership of the Conservative party. In any case here’s my cartoon and your captions are very much welcome!
