BBC London Mayoral Hustings
Last night’s hustings will be dissected and the post-match spin applied by the various teams. Two things struck Guido. Firstly Ken seemed uncharacteristically lacking in confidence. He talked about “the new mayor” and what Boris would do as a mayor. Not his usual chirpy cockney character.

Secondly, on balance whereas none of the candidates made a compelling case, Andrew Neil was very good. Well briefed, firm, aggressive enough, refusing to accept bullshit spin. He had tough questions for them all that were thought out with supplementary comebacks. Whereas Paxman would sneer, Brillo laced his interrogative aggression with humour. The victor of last night’s hustings was definitely Brillo.
