Now it's a shame he said that, for three reasons.
- It's an idiotic thing to say as Lib Dem second preferences will be crucial in determining whether it is Boris or Ken who wins the 2012 London mayoral election.
- It's an incredibly nasty and insulting thing to say which has put me off Ken completely. Which is a shame because:
- I used to prefer Ken to Boris Johnson. Mainly because the latter's record as mayor consists mainly of breaking promises, ignoring everyone who disagrees with him and hiking up fares at a rate far above inflation, hitting the poorest people in London the hardest.
Well, fine by me. As far as I'm concerned, it's a plague on both their houses for Boris and Ken.
So, fuck it, I'm backing Lembit.*
