We can see the style of mayoral campaign that the Lib Dems are planning

Quite an interesting piece over on Ian Carter’s Croydon Advertiser blog.

The Lib Dems really can’t help using personal attacks and sweeping generalisations. This time they’re attacking Boris for using the name “Bridget Jones” in a press release about the housing needs of London’s single women.

Not criticising the idea or the policy, no, no, no. Just the use of the words Bridget and Jones describing it as “shocking blunder“!

Then comes the condescending generalisation “The majority of women in London are smart, independent and focused“. In which case they won’t need Brian Paddock to tell them whether or not to be offended by the name Bridget Jones.

  1. It was a strange statement for Boris to make. He seems concerned about all these young women who are first time buyers, who still only constitute 25% of first time buyers.From what I remember the fictional BJ lived in a flat in the centre of town, so why is the Boris trying to build one bedroom houses with gardens for the new generation of mistresses for Conservative politicians?Shouldn’t he be encouraging these young women to get married and restore family values to London? What London really needs is family homes for the majority of people stepping onto the housing ladder in couples.
