Boris Johnson – working class hero

It’s official.  Boris Johnson is more popular than Ken Livingstone with the decent working man.  In a YouGov poll, offering a straight choice between Boris and Ken, Boris led by 44% to 41%. Since the beginning of the Mayoral contest, Boris has led Ken comfortably in the professional betting (usually judged the most accurate) and is still doing so.  But the most outstanding achievement of our Mayor is that in spite of the cuts, he is polling well ahead of the Tory party.

The dire economic situation and the fact that Labour is polling 16% ahead of the Tories means that Ken should have a solid lead by now.  He hasn’t.

Ken is polling a whopping 14% below the Labour Party.  Londoners just don’t seem to like Ken, and they do like Boris, so much so, that many Labour voters plan to vote for him.

Lefties are desperately praying that dislike for the cuts will bring their man home.  Even they aren’t so daft as to think he could win because of his hate campaign, unsubtly aimed at the “cruel Tories”, let alone his lack of personal charm.

The incredible thing is that lots of left wingers are voting Boris.

The truth is a beautiful thing and people recognise it when they hear it.  That, in my view, explains Boris’s’s appeal.  He tells the truth, whether it is popular or not,  and Londoners appreciate that.

  1. So true Angie , Ken seems to be disliked by his own followers ,
    whereas Boris is loved by all because he genuinely cares!

  2. What a picture! I love it! The helmet and the mischievous smile playing over the Mayor’s lips, hair spraying out, so funny.

  3. Who could look at that face and not give him your vote? Boris’s delivery on the Politics Show was hilarious. Time impeccable.

  4. Boris is doing incredibly well to be polling so far ahead of the Tory Party. As you indicate, Ken should have a solid lead, if you look at Labour polling results. He has not. I don’t think Londoners like Ken either, because let’s face it, he’s not very likeable.

  5. I have been browsing on-line more than three hours nowadays, but I by
    no means found any fascinating article like yours.
    It is lovely price enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you probably
    did, the internet might be much more helpful than ever before. http://Www.yahoo.net/
