Ken beats Oona King to win the Labour candidacy for Mayor of London by 68.6% to 31.4%. It’s Boris v. Ken, The Rematch!
Ken’s craggy features creased into a genuinely warm grin as he was congratulated by people on all sides, including Harriet Harman and Oona, for winning the nomination. Ken kindly pointed out that that Boris wasn’t to be blamed for his private life, his looks or the fact that he went to Eton, because no child could ever be blamed for his schooling which was chosen by his parents. I had a huge fit of the giggles. Ken has obviously been practising. It’s going to be huge fun…….. King Newt is back.
