Livingstone PEB participants speak out in new video

    This video is actually a lot more convincing than the “real” PEB which was much too slick.

    So Eddie Izzard is the guiding hand here.  That explains alot!!

      Eddie Izzard – last seen running barefoot through Putney on Saturday evening. The pressure must be getting to him!

    This campaign has been a farce. Instead of focusing on policies it’s once again been about personalities. Although Ken’s tax returns are interesting, it’s just a nice distraction for Bojo, as is this controversy surrounding a good PEB. Happens every year, just like in 2011 with AV- nothing to do with the actual issues, it was just a “let’s give Clegg a bloody nose” campaign.

      The sad thing is that the innuendo surrounding this broadcast has come from “Labour Uncut” – the Dan Hodges shower, who, for reasons of their own, which we can all guess, would prefer to see Johnson remain Mayor. This outcome will do no good whatsoever for the poorer people of London, but of course Hodges and co are not poor so it won’t matter to them. Meanwhile, they play their silly little game and nothing seems to be being done to investigate their motives and methods. I think “Fifth Column” and it’s clients would be interesting to investigate.

        No, it came from the Guardian.

          No, it came from team Ken and was then first reported in the Guardian.

    Much better, unscripted. Last one was so fake and badly acted.

    it wasn’t ‘acted’….that’s the point!

  • Bill

    The actors will be delighted how this worked out. Double payday!

  • AlanGiles

    It might be worth reminding the “Labour Uncut “shower of the first Friday in May 1997, when Blair arrived in Downing Street all those beautiful people there to greet him – bussed in by HQ hand-icked to look photogenic. Now if you are talking about cynical PR…….

  • Amber Star

    Something which is surprising & interesting has come out of BoJo’s nasty tax attack. You Gov have done a poll which shows that 75% of the public think that “many” MPs use avoidance measures to reduce the amount they pay. 52% think that all MP candidates should have to release their tax returns & 51% agree that, like Sweden, everybody’s tax returns should be available to the public.

    Making all tax returns public is most popular with the 60+ age group (58% support).

    What will Labour do about this deadly epidemic?

    There’s an epidemic sweeping the world. It destroys families, snuffs out hope and opportunity and hurts those who least deserve a painful death. I’m not talking about Ebola (though that’s an unspeakably horrifying plague), nor am I talking about Malaria or TB (both of which cause a death toll that dwarves Ebola every single year). I’m talking about something that kills every five minutes. Violence against children. Unicef UK have a new report out today (“Children in Danger”) that highlights […]

    The UKIP Calypso should be number one

    On the 1st March 1945, a reggae legend was born. Two years later, on the 1st March 1947, Mike Read was born. Unfortunately, a birthday is no longer the only thing that connects Mike Read and multiple Grammy-winner Burning Spear. They are now both purveyors of politically charged Afro-Carribean songs about independence. By now, you should all be aware of the new UKIP single. Sung by former Radio One disc jockey Mike Read, it is a rare foray by the […]

    What does the new Shadow Europe Minister mean for Labour’s position on free movement

    The biggest story of last night’s mini-reshuffle was the return of Pat McFadden to Labour’s frontbenches, as Shadow Europe Minister, four years after he left his post at Shadow Business, Innovation and Skills. While much has been made of his Blairite credentials, what may be more interesting is his position on free movement within the EU. The Labour Party has been talking a lot about “fair movement, not free movement” in the EU – most recently Shadow Immigration minister Dave […]

    If you care about the rise of Ukip, go to Rochester and Strood

    If you care about the rise of UKIP’s populist right-wing politics and you want to do something to stop it now, there is one place you need to make a trip to and campaign for Labour between now and 20 November: Rochester & Strood. Polling guru Mike Smithson has said it “will have a dramatic affect on the political environment in the six months to the May 7th general election.” He’s thinking of the impact between UKIP and the Tories, […]
