London Mayoral Candidate Niko Omilana Pledges To Reduce Freddo Price Back To 5p

One of the candidates to be the next Mayor of London - for which the voting takes place on May 6 - says that they will reduce the price of a Freddo back down to just five pence again.

The candidate in question is YouTuber Niko Omilana, and he's running against such luminaries of the political world as current London mayor Sadiq Khan and Count Binface.

In fact, last night Omilana took place in a 'speed debate' between Niko and Khan hosted by LADbible last night.

The speed debating test pitted Khan against Omilana in order to gauge their quick-witted responses to the big questions that Londoners need answered.

As well as some serious questions, we also found out about whether the candidates like pineapple on pizza, and whether they'd rather fight 100 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck.

But enough of that - because pineapple does belong on pizza, and 100 duck sized horses can be dealt with a can-do attitude and a pair of Doc Martens - let's get down to policies.

Amongst Omilana's policies are a few silly things such as banning three-quarter trousers and turning power off once each year in an event called 'Londoff' and there are some ones that actually make sense.

'Boris Johnson will be forced to shush' is an interesting one, for sure.

Then you've got 'the EDL will be deported to Poland and taken off our streets so they can learn what it is like to be an immigrant'.

Not sure how the good folks in Poland would take to it though.

However, last on the list is 'Price of the Freddo to go back down to 5p'.

Truly, that is a policy we can all get behind. Sensible policies for a happier London.

Currently, the price of a Freddo at the supermarket is about 25p, which is a disgrace. As we all know, they used to be so much cheaper.

However, he'll have to pull some serious strings at Cadbury if he's to get them to budge on their valuation of the Freddo bar.

Perhaps some sort of taxpayer funded scheme?

Either way, despite saying 'vote Niko Omilana for Mayor of London on May 6 or your breath stinks', he's currently polling at just five percent, which is better than Lawrence Fox, but not good enough to topple overwhelming favourite Khan.

Speaking to Buzzfeed News, Omilana assured voters that this isn't just a big joke - despite the fact that it is - adding: "I'm taking it extremely seriously. I don't know how I can convey it to the voters any more than [I am] right now."

On a serious note, he added: "I feel like young people aren't represented in politics, hence why I've decided to step forward and put myself in the limelight.

"I didn't want to do this, but I felt like I had no choice. There's that Thanos moment of 'fine, I'll do it myself'."

London, as well as the rest of the UK except Northern Ireland, goes to the polls tomorrow on May 6.

Make sure you chuck in a vote to make your voice heard, whether Freddos are your main political issue or not.
