King for Mayor

Guido is a little annoyed to be scooped by The Guardian about Oona King’s mayoral campaign. He had a very interesting chat with a cabbie who had picked up two apparatchiks on Victoria Street and overheard their in-depth conversation about the relative merits of King and openly discussing her very active campaign a few weeks back. Won’t bother trying to double source it next time…

High on their list of reasons why they were backing King was the cynical acceptance that it will play well that there has never been a female Mayor, or a black one. If her campaign is as organised as the two Labour staff were suggesting the Ken will not be a problem apparently. Oona vs. Boris? Insert joke here about there only being room for one king etc …
