After the Newsnight Mayoral Debate, Ken Livingstone’s team accused Boris Johnson of rehashing old stories and negative attacks. Their statement is as follows:
“The Tories’ campaign is entirely about negative attacks and raking up old stories. In 45 minutes of debate Boris Johnson hardly said a positive thing about what he would do for London.
‘This election is about who will make Londoners better off. Ken has set out a series of ways in which he will do this, from cutting fares to introducing a London-wide Education Maintenance Allowance, reducing rents and cutting energy bills.
‘Its clear from tonight’s debate the Tory Mayor has nothing positive to offer.”
