    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).

    Zero Discrimination Day: why LBGT rights matter worldwide

    When Ed Miliband appointed me his LGBTI global envoy he displayed once again his grasp of the wrongs that exist in the world and our need to be part of the resolution of these defining issue. His lead was followed this month when President Obama appointed Randy Berry as State Department LGBT envoy. And this is extremely important because when oppression and discrimination are on the increase that is precisely when we need to give our voice to the voiceless. […]

    One million more families will have to pay the Bedroom Tax if the Tories win in May, figures show

    One million more families will have to pay the Bedroom Tax if the Tories win the election in May, according to figures examined by the Labour party. These figures show that 220,000 more families would have to pay the tax each year of the five yearlong Tory government. As it stands, of those paying the tax – which on average amounts to £14 more a week in rent for an extra bedroom and £25 for two or more – one […]

    Two-thirds are in favour of Labour’s tuition fee pledge, poll finds

    YouGov polling on behalf of The Times Red Box, has found that two-thirds of people are in favour of Labour’s plan to cut tuition fees from £9,000 to £6,000 a year. As we reported on Friday, Labour announced they would cut tuition fees and increase the maintenance grant by £400. They would fund this by reducing tax reliefs given to the country’s wealthiest pensioners. This policy would come in to force for those entering universities in September 2016. YouGov have […]

    East Coast: Why privatisation is not the end of the line for rail reform

    I am writing this article on board what the Conservative Party hopes is one of the last publicly run trains in Britain. On Sunday, East Coast will be privatised. The nation’s stake – its share in the East Coast Main Line company – will be sold to Stagecoach and Virgin Trains for a meagre £11 million. The East Coast livery will be quietly replaced by a new brand, as if the last five and a half years never occurred. Why […]

    Dugher criticises Cameron for “ideological sell off” of East Coast ahead of privatisation tomorrow

    Tomorrow, East Coast Main Line will be taken over by private companies Virgin and Stagecoach.   Ahead of this, Michael Dugher, Shadow Transport Secretary, will give a speech in Leeds in which he’ll outline how Labour would allow public sector companies to “take on lines and challenge the private sector on a genuinely level playing field.” They’d do this, he says, within the first 100 days of government.  . Dugher is expected to say: “The end of East Coast Trains will […]
