    I thought I'd seen it all a couple of years ago when a Romany guy was standing stark bollock naked on the corner of Haymarket and Piccadilly Circus washing his underwear in a fountain before a policewoman wrestled him to the ground but this was certainly crossing a line. Unbelievable...

    I know, as taxi drivers I am sure we could write a book about what we've seen. Without going into the details, there is very little that shocks me now.

    I was wondering if Starmer would breath new life into the Labour Party, and give the party a younger and fresher look. Seems it hasn't happened at all. I guess with Corbyn you either liked him or loathed him, but Starmer seems to be too central, and so doesn't appeal to the Labour hardcore. What I don't understand, is how those whose political views are more central, find voting for Boris more appealing than voting for the Starmer. Perhaps its a question of charisma, but after these results he must be feeling the pressure.

    Presumably the filmer would justify it by saying he was gather evidence of a crime.

    Offender must surely have been either Care in the Community or a French fisherman...

    Spain stands out for me from that list. Third lowest centre-left vote since democracy? - they only have democracy about 40 odd years after Franco died in the late 70's. The current government is led by the socialist party leader Pedro Sanchez in coalition with the Podemos Party which is even more left wing than the Socialist party.

    The worrying thing about Spain is that the Ultra Right wing Vox party gained 15% of the vote at the last general elections and they are taking control of lots of Regional parliaments and council's around Spain. Vox are mostly taking their votes from people who previously voted the centre right party Partido Popular - Spanish equivalent of the tories. Vox are the equivalent of the Nazis/National Front/BNP and have tapped into a wave of Nationalism surrounding the crisis around Catalan Independence in 2017.

    Therefore, whoever has Spain on that list is not very clever as the left are definitely in power in Spain. Something far more worrying is how an extreme right wing party like Vox can attract so many voters from a middle of the road right wing party like the Partido Polular.

    Strange that last weeks elections all polled well under 50% turnout, just 32% in London, it doesn't seem that important to many...
