Ferguson favourite

Architect George Ferguson has emerged as the early favourite to become Bristol’s first elected mayor. He is quoted by Ladbrokes at 2/1...(full Post story here).
George Ferguson is a pretty canny operator. He does have a decent chance of becoming the first Mayor of Bristol, though I don’t see how the odds make much sense at this very early stage. Arguably he already has a national standing which no other potential candidate currently in the picture can equal.

It will be interesting to see the policies George and his team come up with - and what the Lib Dem position on selecting a candidate is. Other independent candidates may emerge and the Greens may put someone up too.

Some background on George Ferguson here and here.

  1. Mr corrupt self serving lying thieving bstard in standing on a platform of printing a lick currency linked to sterling and paying all citizens of Bristol a unconditional basic income guarantee of £15000 a year funded by a transaction tax on all spending. This week shopkeepers in clones Ireland have started accepting illegal defunct punts again and the French president has called for a financial transaction tax. Corrupt bstard is not as foolish as maybe he looks. Here's the Irish story and here is corrupt bstards manifesto
