Mr Troll

I think you should send the Mayor a gift so you get on the list, Of course you must send it as 'The Tory Troll' for full effect ;-)

What a good idea. What shall I send? Anyone got any ideas?

I suggest one of the following books on London

(apols for including so many but I was unsure how much the troll would like to spend)

The Ladybird book of politics would be more his level surely?

I was looking at the register of interest today, and came accross this - worth looking into?

1(a)(v) – Names of any people/body that have made any payment to me in respect of my election or any expenses incurred by me in carrying out my duties:

The detail of the Election expenses for the regulated Election Period will be available following the proscribed time limit of 70 days, which will be the 11th July 2008. This is the timescale provided for under S81 (1A) of the Representation of the People Act 1983 as amended for the publication of the return of Election Expenses for the Mayor of London.

Well the Evening Standard seem to have been given them. But they should have been put on the website surely?

Sarah said...

Why are people sending Bojo alcohol when they know he can't use it on the Tube? Oh, silly me he doesn't use the tube, does he?
What was all that about Ken drinking?

victor allen said...

Wasn't Boris invited to Billy Bragg's party? I think that's mean?

Harold said...

Have you noticed that Ken's list includes a dreidel, which is something we use at Chunukah which, without going into details, is a spinner for a game of chance.
I can see Evening Standard headline next week: KEN LIVINGSTONE HAS GAMBLING PROBLEM.

On what the Tory Troll should send Boris? How about a ticket to next year's Rise Festival. That would confuse him.

Anonymous said...

How about a wooden spoon for Boris? I'd love to see that on the gift list.

Martin said...

BTW I'm told Troll will have to spend £25 or more for his gift to make the list.

Still, how can you put a price on comedy? ;-)

karl said...

An assortment of wooden spoons in a nice box? I'll gladly chip in towards the £25, whatever the 'gift' is.

"I can see Evening Standard headline next week: KEN LIVINGSTONE HAS GAMBLING PROBLEM."

'Ken Livingstone In World Jewish Conspiracy Bribery Shock', surely? This is Associated Newspapers, after all, and they have form for this sort of thing.
