Boris Johnson and our Ken

The only interesting thing about Boris and my claim to infamous links is that we were born on the same day, apart from that we disagree with almost everything he does. Ah yes and we both suffer from foot in mouth disease as we both talk before we speak sometimes, but hey we live in an imperfect world and we can't help thinking that we are perfect?

Anyway that aside I think that our Ken (not the Deidre Barlow variety) needs to start putting himself about if he is going to be at the opening ceremony of the London Olympics. I am a major supporter of Ken Livingstone but perhaps his PR people should start throwing his name around and linking him with positive things and events, like the 2 day wine festival in Alexandra Palace happening in a weeks time attended by more than 50,000? Just a thought...

One of my criticisms during the last election, and I said this to our Ken when I spoke to him at a reception at the Lambeth Town Hall, is that he did not put as much effort as Boris did visiting ethnic radio stations a week or two before and he lost some votes form organised communities because of that. He should not do that again. It is a fact that many who listen to these radio stations will take into account whether some candidate makes the effort in connecting with them... simple I would think?
