Surely you're not that naive are you Sanity? Or do you just think we are? Lol, I really can't see any point linking an article from the Torygraph endorsing Boris, I mean its not like they would ever say anything else is it? The only time British newspapers can be logically used to illustrate a political argument would be if the Guardian turns blue or the Mail/Telegraph,etc turns red, otherwise its utterly redundant.
I'm assuming that you are sounding off without bothering to look at the link. Had you done so, you would have noticed that it was written by Dan Hodges, who worked for the Labour Party, the GMB and who describes himself as writing about Labour with a "tribal loyalty". (Or do you just think that people are too stupid to notice that it was in fact an article by a tribal, longstanding and comitted Labour activist, endorsing Boris.)
The idea that such a piece is invalid because it appears in the telegraph is irrelevant. That the grauniad or mirror would never carry it is telling about them, not the significance of someone such as Hodges rejecting Livingstone, something demonstrated by the fact that according to the polls, about one in five, even of those who voted Labour in 2010, were intending to vote against him.This post has been edited by sanitynotincluded: May 4 2012, 17:38
