    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).

There was a brief moment when it seemed David Lammy was her choice, but now she has revealed exactly who she thinks is the best person for the job. In an interview […]

    Don’t narrow our leadership bid

    As the Labour Party licks its wounds after our worst General election defeat for 100 years we could be about to step into an abyss. Labour MPs have the power to stop this happening. Under the new leadership rules Labour MPs’ final vote in the election of a new leader have (quite rightly, and one of Ed Miliband’s key reforms) only the same weight as any other member’s vote. But where MPs really have the chance to shape the choice […]
