Ken Backtracks, Blames Guido

The Livingstone campaign have backed down and are taking down the photo that they posted of Ken’s activists grinning and laughing outside the Mayor’s family home. The majority of the Labour twitterati did their utmost to try to defend the picture, probably because they were in on the “Winning in Islington” joke too. The statement from Ken campaign guru Mike Joslin says:

“We have removed a photo that appeared on this page earlier today. YourKen.org contains a range of photos of our volunteers campaigning across London, in this case Labour canvassers campaigning in the recent Islington byelection. No pictures identify the names of residents in particular addresses, including this one. As Harry Cole and the Guido Fawkes blog have chosen to reveal the name of a resident in this house we have decided to replace this photo.

Why was it there in the first place? Is this what Labour meant by “beating Boris in his own backyard”, as the by-election hype said? And who took the photo Mike?

So their hilarious spin is to say that it’s all Guido’s fault for revealing that it was Boris’s house. However we obscured the number and the public interest is firmly on the side of revealing, yet again, the former Mayor’s spectacularly bad judgement. This is a man that wants to be in charge of London’s security during what will be the biggest test the Met has ever faced.

President Trump on May’s Brexit deal:

“I would say that Brexit is Brexit. … The people voted to break it up. So I would imagine that’s what they’ll do. But maybe they’ll take a different route, I’m not sure that’s what they voted for.”
