    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…….

    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).

    Case for the EU is “stronger than ever” – Benn

    Hilary Benn has today evoked the last Labour government’s successes on climate change and African debt relief in a heartfelt plea to persuade Britons to vote to stay in the EU. Benn, the shadow Foreign Secretary, highlighted the “moral interest” in European nations coming together to prevent conflict and tackle climate change and poverty. In a series of personal comments he also described his own transformation, from voting to leave in the last referendum, in 1975, to forming the belief […]

    What might be the path to Labour victory in 2020?

    Karin Smyth MP chaired the most recent meeting of Labour for the Common Good group in Parliament – this is her report. You can read all reports of the meetings here. There was a sociological dimension to last May’s crushing defeat. The biggest transformations in the structure of British society since 2010 – an ageing population and an employment shift from public to private sectors – swelled the numbers of voting categories which have traditionally been cold towards Labour. And so […]

    I love unions. Why doesn’t everyone else?

    I love unions. Of course I do – I started my apprenticeship in 1989 and joined the trade union on my first day. As a young electrician, I joined the Electrical, Electronic, Telecommunications and Plumbing Union without thinking twice. Every single one of my fellow apprentices joined too. It was a journey which, over the course of the 20th century, millions of young men and women took: leave school, go to work in the local heavy industry (in my case […]

    Reed warns over threat of further electoral slump amid council funding fears

    A Labour shadow minister has warned against assumptions that the party’s vote has “hit the bottom” and told colleagues they must speak up for England to a greater extent. Steve Reed, shadow minister for local government, said Labour must learn more from major councils which had managed to be “credible, relevant and win elections”. Reed, a former Lambeth council leader, also warned that the party leadership “feels out of touch”. “I wish the Labour party could speak for England in […]

    Labour is seeking to force the Government to proceed with the second part of the Leveson inquiry after Ministers suggested it was on the brink of being dropped.

Today Eagle said Cameron is “reneging on this promise as though he […]
