* Looks like the combined efforts of the Bunglawussi clan & the MCB couldn’t keep Red Ken, the terrorist-hugging, America-hating, communist from soiling the mayoral office any longer: Boris is in, Red Ken out.
* Gordon Brown(nose) goes down…
Boris Johnson sealed a nightmarish first electoral test for Gordon Brown, surging to a hugely symbolic victory for the Conservatives in London.
Mr Johnson claimed the largest prize of a triumphant day for David Cameron by ending Ken Livingstone’s eight-year reign as London Mayor. He said that he did not believe that his victory meant that London was a Conservative city, but pledged to work “flat out” to earn the trust of those who doubted his capability and commitment to the job.
Mr Livingstone, fighting back tears, said that the fault for his defeat was entirely his own.
