    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).

    Miliband plans “Home Office Enforcement Unit” to tackle illegal exploitation of immigrants

    Ed Miliband will tomorrow lay out the five Labour principles that will underpin the party’s approach to immigration. In what the party are calling a “major speech” in the North West, Miliband will say that while he believes “immigration can benefit our country” he feels it necessary to say that “Labour got this wrong in the past”. His message will be: “We have listened. We have learned. And we have changed.” The five principles Miliband will set out are: Rebuilding […]

    The Promise of Britain – watch Ed Miliband’s speech announcing an end to unpaid internships

    Ed Miliband today said a Labour Government would bring about an end to unpaid internships, as he launched the party’s manifesto for young people in Lincoln. The Labour leader revisited his idea of the Promise of Britain: “Over the last five years I’ve been talking about what I call the Promise of Britain. The Promise of Britain, to me, says the next generation should do better than the last. I actually think it’s the way you judge the progress and […]

    The latest Ashcroft poll of Scottish seats is more than a mere earthquake – it’s a cataclysm

    If previous Ashcroft constituency polling in Scotland could be described as an earthquake, the poll the Tory peer had dropped this afternoon will require an entirely different word. A cataclysm perhaps. If this is an earthquake it’s certainly not the kind that rattles the windows in the middle of the night, it’s the sort that razes whole cities to the ground. If Lord Ashcroft’s polling is correct, there’s a risk that Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy could lose his seat […]

    Shouldn’t Michael Gove be a bit disappointed with himself?

    Michael Gove used to stride around Whitehall like he owned the place. Of all of the Tory Cabinet ministers who took up their posts in 2010, Gove was clearly the one who was most determined to change things. Not in a way that I’d like, admittedly. In my view his treatment of the education as a tool of ideological warfare damaged pupil and teacher alike. But there was no doubt that this was someone on a mission to change Britain. Which […]

They say the odds for Miliband to be PM on July 1st are 5/6, while Cameron comes in at evens. Nigel Farage is a long shot at 100/1, while Nick Clegg is even further out at 200-1. The recalculation comes after last night’s TV debate, which Miliband was […]
