Croydon Tory MP Gavin Barwell seems to be in the forefront of trying to make sure that the story is Ken Livingstone losing it, when from what I can tell the whole thing was Ken being Ken. (He’s not due to turn up on Have I got News For You, soon is he?)

Which other Nations Capital can claim that the most important electoral broadcasts of the Mayoral campaign, will be the candidates appearances on a comedy show.
