19 other things Zac Goldsmith can do, now he won't be mayor of London

Okay, we’re gonna make like an American TV network and call this election. With the majority of the votes in London’s mayoral election counted, Labour’s Sadiq Khan has a substantial lead over his Tory rival Zac Goldsmith. Britain’s leading elections expert Professor John Curtice is now predicting that Khan will win with 57 per cent of the vote.

Ladies and gentlemen – Sadiq Khan will be the new mayor of London.

So, the question on everybody’s lips is – what will Zac do now?

Work as a litter picker.

Train as a junior florist.

 

Attempt to pick vegetables, but get a bit over-excited that they’ve let him hold the safety scissors.

Be apprenticed to a bricklayer.

 

Learn basic IT, perhaps with a view to getting some secretarial work.
