With the Daily Telegraph’s Andrew Gilligan pouring derision on Ken Livingstone for trying to move the mayoral race away from negative campaigning, does the “journalist” protest too much?
As noted by the blog Gilligan Watch, who have surveyed all of his ramblings, the number of attack posts Gilligan produces is frankly staggering. Andy has churned out 27 hatchet jobs in the last month — comprising 75% of his blogging output.
- 27 posts attacking Ken
- 2 posts praising Boris
- 1 declaring Brian Paddick the winner of a debate (so he didn’t have to say it was Ken)
The animated GIF below relates a pretty accurate metaphor.
