Ivan-o Idea What I Pay My Staff

It all went a bit Natalie Bennett for wannabe Tory mayoral candidate Ivan Massow on LBC this evening:

When asked why he was calling for a London Living Wage yet paying his staff the minimum wage all Ivan could muster was: “oh God”. Yikes.

Ivan Massow Launch Strikes Sour Note

Some might say mocking up a £100,000 note with your face on it isn’t the best way for a millionaire politician to show he is in touch with the concerns of everyday people. Yet that is what optimistic Tory London mayor hopeful Ivan Massow has done:

Alas, the high production values of his launch video could not entirely compensate for the subject:

Ivan the Terrible…

Ivan Massow’s Meeting Mystery

This afternoon Guido reported that Tory mayoral wannabe Ivan Massow turned up in Thanet to campaign for the Tories, only to leave after taking a few photos:

Massow hit back, claiming that he had to be back in London for a super important meeting with Boris:

Six minutes after Ivan claimed to be meeting the Mayor, Boris tweeted evidence to the contrary:

City Hall sources say the Mayor has been out all day…

UPDATE: City Hall now saying Boris posted the tweet later in the day and was in fact back in the office at 4. The point still stands, Massow was only in Thanet for an hour.

Tory Stunt: Mayoral Candidate’s Whistle-Stop Thanet Tour

At 12:20 this afternoon Tory mayoral wannabe Ivan Massow declared that he was on his way to Thanet South to campaign, “to show Thanet that we care”:

At 13:49 Massow posted this photograph of him outside the campaign HQ on the ground:

At 13:59 a co-conspirator reports that Ivan Massow boarded the train back to London.

Although he didn’t manage to Tweet a snap of that.

Looks like he doesn’t care about Thanet, beyond a flying visit for the photo…

UPDATE: Massow responds:

Hmmmm…
