What would Clement do?

A Labour blog that witters on about Clement Attlee. Hurrah for The Major!

NAGGING, ANNOYING, AND IT WON’T GO AWAY

No, its not an STD, and strangely enough, its not even Caroline Spellman. It is actually my feelings about the Candidates for London Mayor in 2012.

Lets just ponder those names in full:

Boris Johnson

Ken Livingstone

Lembit Opik

CHRIST ON A BIKE!!!! THREE JOKE CANDIDATES IN A ROW!!??!!

Is there some kind of law that precludes the selection of candidates that are neither embarrassing nor egomaniacs?

I look at these names, and their media profiles with dread and disdain. It makes you want to find a candidate who actually wants to do the job well, keep out of the spotlight and actually increase the unity of this city, rather than appearing on “Come Dine With Me”, pandering to special interests, or quoting dog-latin in an awful self-parody…

As a Labour Member. I will have to campaign loyally for Ken, and I will. But I really wish that someone would stand under the banner of the soon to be formed “One of this lot? No, REALLY???” Party.

Jeremy Clarkson

Wolfie Smith

Beaker

People, is this really the best our respective parties can do???

Did the writers of the excellent “TwentyTwelve” on BBC set this up???
