Beyond Their Ken
Just as, if Cameron was so frightened of David Miliband, then why did the right-wing press and the Cameron-worshipping BBC want him to win, so why did they want Oona King to win if she posed the slightest realistic threat to Boris Johnson? Whatever else Ken Livingstone may be, he is quite possibly the most ruthless political operator in Britain today. Oona King simply isn't. Nor, for that matter, is Boris Johnson. Ken's re-election will effectively be for life.
