The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

By September 24, 2010News

So, the 2012 Mayoral election is going to be a re-run of the 2008 vote, as Ken Livingstone has defeated Oona King to become Labour’s candidate for the 2012 ballot.

Red Ken won 68.8% of the total votes. He said: “When we defeat Boris we will have played a part in rebuilding the Labour Party after the general election. Everywhere you look Boris has broken promises and taken his axe to services Londoners rely on.”

Mr Livingstone said the current mayor’s fingerprints were “all over the scene of the crime” of current cuts.

Whilst Bozza and Ken go head to head once again, the Liberal Democrat Mayoral candidate looks increasingly like being a ‘celebrity’ politician. We have already reported here how ex-kids TV presented Floella Benjamin might get the nod, but now it seems that charismatic stand-up comic Lembit Opik is also seeking the Lib Dem nomination.

He said: “I will stand for the candidature but it is obviously up to the party to decide if they’d like me to do that. The reason is simple. I think my left-wing, libertarian agenda accords with the mood of London and of course I was an MP for 13 years and before that in local government.

“I think I have the experience to do it.”

Bozza v Ken v Lembit.  That promises to be a TV debate not to miss…

    Could we not have had a mugshot of the delightful Floella instead of Mr Nosepik?. What a waste of space he is !.
