At last, something Londoners can rally around – is Oona King the most embarrassing candidate in any British election yet?
Here’s Monday’s entry from her campaign blog – I’ve reproduced it below in case it mysteriously gets deleted, because if I was in her campaign, I’d be trying to hide it…
Yeah, right, Big Brother, years after it stopped getting mass audiences… “the jungle I prefer is politics” – ouch… and what the hell does “I don’t mean to Glee” mean? And then she has the front to imply that Ken Livingstone (aged 65) is too old to do the job, when she’s sounding like an out-of-touch auntie?
Politicians trying to cling onto pop culture references nearly always end up looking like berks. With nonsense like this, and a weak set of policies to match, King will be lucky to still be in public life at 45, never mind 65. The tragic thing is, this is the only person the Labour Party could find to take on Ken for a shot at the big job. Doesn’t look like they hold London in much respect, does it?
