The Cardigan Candidate Suns Himself as London Burns

Every player has now returned to Westminster to sweep up the mess of the riots. Better late than never in some cases, but back in town none the less. So where is the man that bills himself as “Serious About London”. Where is the man with“Serious Solutions”? Not Boris or Ken, they are both back and scrapping. Lembit has been pressing the flesh and pounding the streets all summer. Brian Paddick hasn’t been off the TV for days, and is even on Question Time tonight. Where though is the LibDem establishment candidate for mayor – the man of many cardigans – Mike Tuffrey?

Why hasn’t there been a peep out of the the man Cowley Street is pinning their hopes on for Mayor? Because he is on holiday. Still.

UPDATE: Guido has been chasing the Cardigan Candidate’s press officer, Ashley Lumsden, who confirmed his boss was on holiday, but refusing to say where. Lumsden asked Guido to email over specific questions, which he duly did, and after receiving no reply has been trying call again. Ashley is in hiding though. Poor form…
