Boris and Livingstone neck and neck

According to today’s YouGov poll for London Tonight, Boris and Livingstone are only 1% apart. This is despite an ongoing and cynical attempt to smear Boris both by Livingstone’s supporters and by Brian Paddick.

Boris has been criticised in the past for not being aggressive enough in his comments about his opponents. I think he is right to keep it clean and let Paddick and Livingstone scrap around in the dirt. Paddick’s increasingly personal attacks on Boris have seen his support sit at only 7%, he is performing significantly worse than his party, a sure sign that Londoners do not like these nasty attacks.

  1. Paddick is right to point out that Boris is a clown. Giving up drinking and speaking in public has clearly helped Boris to close the gap with Ken. I am sure Ken would also be more popular if he disappeared and kept his mouth shut. But why would we want a mayor who is afraid of the next gaff they will make? Surely it would be better to have a candidate who actually talks sense. Maybe Greg Dyke can run as an independent.
