London Calling

UK-wide Brown rogered like Major by David Cameron. In London, the BBC and Izvestya have for the past 8 hours saying a race that gave the Tories a near 20 point bust nationwide “too close to call” in London. In spite of the fact, bookies have been paying out on Bets for Boris for 12 hours.

Boris Johnson appears to be the winner, while the neocom hopes remain for Red Ken, a man building a Marion Barry like grip on the general vote by funding random “community groups” with municipal funds, and engaging in foreign policy without Whitehall remit (i.e. Palestinian “Peace” conferences and making fuel deals with Hugo Chavez).

The real question is, will Ken Livingstone demand a Al Gore/Robert Mugabe style recount?
