More details
I am Siobhan Benita and I am running for Mayor of London in 2012.

I am not a party politician and won't waste my time - or yours - fighting tired political battles. I am in touch with Londoners and understand their day to day concerns.

I will be an inclusive mayor, working for all Londoners. I will make education a priority, improve the transport network, increase opportunities for people and businesses, and build better and safer neighbourhoods.

My experience as a former senior civil servant at the heart of government makes me a credible, independent alternative to Ken and Boris.

Please pledge your first preference vote to my campaign and encourage your friends, family and colleagues to sign up too!

  • Siobhan Benita,
    May I congratulate you on your determination and for standing your ground. You truly have got the attention of many and I wish you so much more continued success. For this country to get back on its feet EVERYONE needs to get under the skin of their community. You understand this and have the ability to communicate with the people already in power. Well done.

  • I think it's so inspiring that you joined the race without seeking to stand for a political party. I also think it's so important to have more than one woman in the race - so thank you! By the way you already have my postal vote,

  • Siobhan's values are right for what the UK needs, the values, and real life experience makes Siobhan a great inspiration, and a refreshing change for the UK economy, and the communities that openly support the vision of affordable housing for all, childcare to enable and drive improvements in parents working futures.

    These combined with, what are percieved by many as other inaccessible improvements, will make the United Kingdom the beacon of Europe, and make the Capital the leading trend that other cities follow.

  • I've had enough of the Ken / Boris pantomime & party politics more generally. London & the UK deserves better.
