Boris Johnson's 'positive' campaign came on leaps and bounds last night after a campaign member compared Ken Livingstone to a Zimbabwean mass-murderering dictator.
Campaigners wearing 'Back Boris' t-shirts surrounded the entrance to the Time Out hustings as their leader read out slogans from a printed list. As his colleagues thrust leaflets into the hands of passers-by, he called out:
"Goodbye Mugabe / Next is Ken / Let's make London Smile again."
As the hustings began he stood silently by the side of the hall and watched the candidates take swipes at his absent leader. But as the debate went on he found his courage, looked down at his sheet and read out persistent heckles across the backs of an increasingly irritated crowd. When asked to be quiet he pleaded:
"But I have some really important things to say about the BNP."
---UPDATE--- Stop Boris now has some photographic evidence. So Mr Jonathan Hoffman. Was it you who typed up this chant or did somebody else give it to you? Email email@example.com
