Ken Livingstone: too toxic for his own leaflets

As Guido Fawkes reports, Labour is sending out thousands of postcards to encourage people to vote in Thursday’s Mayoral election on which there is not a single mention of Ken Livingstone. There can be no more eloquent sign of just how toxic he is.

Tom Watson, Labour’s campaign co-ordinator, has publicly appealed for people to “hold your nose [and] vote for Ken,” insisting: “I believe him when he says [the fare cut figures] are going to work.”

Over the next few days I’ll be rolling out some evidence of just how much you can believe Ken.

Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for those tax accounts of his – the ones that he first promised to publish on April 4, and promised again on Tuesday that they would be out “shortly.” Every other candidate published theirs within 24 hours, but disclosure becomes so much harder if you’ve got something to hide.
