Londoners face a real dilemma on May 1. Ken has proved he is not fit to be our Mayor any longer; Boris has never done anything to prove that he is fit to be Mayor.

I'm not a career politician like Ken and Boris. I've spent my life delivering public services for Londoners. I believe we need a real change on May 1.
