Quote of the day: Harry Phibbs.

“You would have thought that a man who had been in City Hall for eight years would relish the chance to talk about his achievements. But so far he has run a mile from it. His campaign strategy has been to link ‘Boris to Tory cuts’, and then, presumably, hope Londoners are fooled by this and forget his 153% increase in council tax, his 60% increase in congestion charge, his £3 million Londoner newspaper. Look at his campaign website and you have to dig very deep to find out about anything he did. But perhaps tellingly, when you do, it is fairly thin for almost a decade in power.”

(Harry Phibbs, on Ken Livingstone.)
