|He's backed the City throughout his Mayoralty....|
On Thursday the 3rd of May London decides who will be the new Mayor of London and here at 'Bollards of London' I thought we would enter the spirit of the election and compare the leading candidates to a bollard that best represents them and their political career/legacy.
Starting off with the present incumbent I thought a rather dandy traditional looking City of London bollard (above) would suit Boris Johnson (Conservative Party candidate) the most considering he's backed the Square mile throughout his mayoralty.

|GLC bollard top...|
Just off Hampton Street SE17 near London's Elephant & Castle I found these Greater London Council (GLC) bollards (above) and who could argue that Ken Livingstone (Labour Party candidate) hasn't left his mark on the capital having been the former Mayor of London and Leader of the Greater London Council before it was abolished.
|The Policeman bollard could only represent one candidate...|
With Jenny Jones (Green Party candidate) believing in a green sustainable agenda for the capital what better bollard (left) could represent her than a pro cycling one placed upon a cycle path in the London borough of Islington.
Finally (below) we have the leap-frog bollard which in my humble opinion best represents Siobhan Benita (Independent candidate) who certainly hopes to 'leap-frog' over a number of the more established candidates running for the Mayoralty.
