Alastair Campbell More Popular Than Ken For Mayor Of London?
Back in 2008, Ken Livingstone received help and advice for his election campaign for the Mayor of London, from both Tony Blair and Alastair Campbell, it made no difference Ken was decisively beaten by Boris, but at least 3 years ago Ken had some measure of popularity, and support from the Labour party hierarchy.
It has often been said that “a week is long time in politics“, if this is indeed the case, then 3 years must be considered an aeon.
In this aeon, Ken’s popularity has sunk to that akin, to a skunk in an elevator.
Well known journalist Iain Dale has a radio show on LBC, and last night, one of his guests was Alastair Campbell. Iain Dale rather cheekily suggested that Alastair Campbell should run for Mayor against Boris. and this morning, there have been a lot of tweets, saying that there is support for Alastair to run! Clearly, Labour voters are desperate for a credible candidate, because Ken’s poor showing in the Mayoral contest so far seems about to end in a god almighty thrashing for Red Ken!
