Now that Ken has neutered his entire campaign by promising not to say anything negative, ever, he’s stuck with terrible and desperate email stunts. This one is off the cringeworthy scale:

Subject: An email I wanted to you to see
I’ve just been sent an email by our Head of Digital and Volunteers and I really wanted you to see it.
He says that we have been overwhelmed with the response for our huge day of action on Tuesday, “Fare Deal Tuesday”.
It promises to be a big day as we leaflet hundreds of stations and thousands of commuters.
I really hope you can be a part of it.

I wanted to let you know that hundreds of people have signed up for Tuesday morning.
It is quite incredible that so many people have signed up.
It shows that we can out organise the Tories.
Do you reckon we could send out an all supporters email to tell people the scale of what they’ve done already and give other people the opportunity to take part?
Who actually speaks like that?
