Ken Versus Nick?

Could the man pictured on your right be Ken Livingstone's next contender for the position of Mayor of London?

If the politcial blogs are to be believed, then he just might well be.

His name is Nicholas Boles, and as well as being Director of the Tory aligned think tank, the Policy Exchange he also unsuccessfully stood for Parliament in Hove during the last general election (and gained some media attention for being an openly gay Tory candidate).

Oh, and he used to share a flat with Ivan Massow, and he's got a place on the Cameron A-list.

Here's what Nicholas had to say to about the rumours:

“On the issue of the Mayor of London, I have nothing to say at the moment. When I do have something to say on that matter I will let you know.”

Wow, a whole two sentences without insulting any Jewish people, he's got an advantage over Ken already.
