Mayoral Roundup: Busy Ken, Quiet Boris

So what are the weary vote-chasers' final offers? Ken Livingstone has been in Vauxhall launching a poster campaign advising Londoners to imagine Boris Johnson in charge of a £39 billion public transport improvement programme. It's punchline? "Suddenly, he's no joke." Then he launched his manifesto for women and ignored another YouGov poll while his office responded tartly to a hit and run attack by TravelWatch chairman Brian Cooke. Apparently, Brian wasn't keen on the Freedom Pass going 24 hours either.

Meanwhile, Londonist has no idea where Boris has been. His team tends to keep these things to itself. But there was a party political broadcast and both he and Ken and Brian Paddick took part in the final TV debate of the campaign on Sky last night. Livingstone will be in west London today, including Southall. Londonist will be there too, if it has the strength.
