During his interview with on the Andrew Marr show yesterday, Ken Livingstone tried to smear Boris Johnson by saying Boris also had used tax avoidance. This morning Guido Fawkes asked Ed Miliband about Ken’s tax avoidance and Ed repeated Ken’s slur – that “Boris had used the same arrangement” as Ken!
In an exclusive on his blog, Guido Fawkes prints Boris’s furious denial in full, you can read the letter on the link.
Ken Livingstone appeared bolshy and uncomfortable when he faced questions about his tax arrangements on Andrew Marr. He tried to distort, prevaricate and outright lie his way out of trouble. He clearly smeared the Mayor by saying “Boris uses the same arrangements for his media and tv. appearances.” An absolutely livid Boris has now set him straight. Now Ed Miliband is backing up Ken’s lies; either he is as bad as Ken or he has been totally bamboozled by the Janus faced phoney.
UPDATE: Fresh revelations on Ken’s tax affairs. The headline of the latest article by Andrew Gilligan is “Ken fails to lie his way out of trouble.” Ken has not had the decency to apologise to Boris after falsely accusing the Mayor of using the same tax arrangements. Ed Miliband has not apologised either.
