London elects its Mayor in 2008, and the campaigns of the respective candidates are going to be warming up in the coming few months. Yet in one core respect Tory candidate Boris Johnson is already ahead – he has a decent website (Back Boris) which comes up as the 3rd result in Google. Ken Livingstone on the other hand has only the stale London.gov.uk pages at the top in Google and a one-page campaign site. Labour really needs to get its act together on this one… And no, before anyone asks, I have nothing to do with any site for Ken although I am responsible for sites for Murad Qureshi and Val Shawcross in the London Assembly.

A 4 lane cantilever on Siemens e-highway, near Frankfurt - from a presentation today. There's an underground petrol storage tank on other side off-road for a service station & they were not allowed to dig foundations so had to swap sides. I thought the railway had issues.
VDL's Davos speech was nauseating in the extreme. Dripping with self congratulation. Pass the sick bag and bring back Juncker who wouldn't be seen dead as this goon convention.
