Ken Livingstone is right: it’s him or Boris Johnson. That’s why I’m voting Boris

Ken Livingstone is right. When Jonathan Freedland announced he could no longer endorse Labour’s mayoral candidate because of his assertion that the Jewish community would not support him because of their wealth, Livingstone responded in a characteristically graceless but frank way. “Well, the simple, brutal fact that Jonathan’s got to face is Boris and myself are the two front runners. It’s no good saying you don’t want Boris, you don’t want me. Like everybody else he’s just got to make a choice.”

While most political candidates try and attract voters, Ken Livingstone has, throughout this campaign, tried to bully potential supporters to the polling station. “Vote for me or else”, has been his unofficial campaign slogan. But, distasteful though this tactic may, there is no defying the logic. Next Friday one of two men will be elected mayor of London, and it will be either Boris Johnson or Ken Livingstone.

That’s why on Thursday I’ll be casting my vote for Boris Johnson. I’ll be supporting my local Labour GLA candidate Len Duvall, and voting Labour in the top-up. But I’ll also be voting against Labour’s mayoral candidate, and I hope he loses.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
