Cuddly Ken strikes again....

Silly old sod is just attention seeking.

I think we can draw our own conclusions re Livingston and how he deals, or fails to deal, with 'social pressures'; and I'm being kind.
He would have fitted well into the bunch led by Wilson.

25pdr - being very careful to avoid libelous comment.

You didn't read it all, did you?
As you say Tatchell's view are the polar opposite.

Anyway, I've got a lot of time for Peter Tatchell. He had the brass balls to attempt a citizen's arrest on Robert Mugabe while he was visiting his chums in London.

Hats off to him, brown or otherwise.

Silly arrse hasn't even mentioned Hong Kong. A lot of UK and European bankers are trying to get out here a the moment.

I agree - I think he's wrong politically but he's got the courage to put himself into danger for what he believes in.

A cynical attempt to curry favour with gays and financial sector workers ahead of his next Mayor bid. Barking Ken vs Boris the Bounder? Why cant somebody stand for Mayor on a platform that states "I will make London work and make its citizens happy without pissing anybody off outside of London like Liverpool or Dubai".

Tempting but the 300 mile drive to work would be a chore. Clarkson was ranting in the S. Times last week that he planned to stand against Ed Milliband in Doncaster. I would most certainly hold his coat.

Forget Doncaster. It's a shite hole.

Stand for London Mayor - I'll be your campaign manager.

You have all the right credentials:

1/. Spent time in the Third World (aka the Naarth East). Check
2/. Understand current issues regarding the military. Er, we can work on that.
3/. Option to hold the coat of celebrities. Check. Great for fund raising.
4/. Long commute. Check. At one with the poor cnuts who have to use public transport and that's a big vote winner in The Smoke.
5/. You look like Mitt Romney. Er, we can work on that.

You'd be a shoe in - or a shoeing. But it would be worth the risk, if only to get away from the Ronny Gill and the Echoaaa.

I met him a few years ago (Red Ken, this is).

I thought he was an ignorant tosser who had no interest in life except power. He certainly didn't seem to me interested in 'people' except in so far as they could give effect to his desire of holding office.

That said, his shafting Tony Blair does make up for quite a lot of ills...

Let's face it, all us non-Londoners laughed till we shit when Red Ken became mayor, because the bastards deserved it. When that joke wore thin we all were rooting for Boris, because we thought that would be a bit of a laugh as well. It turns out he's done quite a good job, in between shagging, which as been a bit disappointing. What we need is a candidate that looks vaguely credible but will do London over big style. Clarkson for mayor!

Like every one of our professional politicians on both sides of the house.
