UK Conservatives to make serious effort to oust “Red Ken”

Following up my posting from Friday morning, “Has Red Ken met his match?” within the last hour Boris Johnson has officially declared himself to be a candidate for mayor of London.

He used today’s edition of the British capital’s main newspaper, the Evening Standard, to officially announce his candidacy.
To add to what I wrote previously on Livingstone: at the same time as repeatedly calling for a boycott of Israeli companies, Livingstone has just signed a contract with a Chinese firm to take over one of London’s rail networks. China has brutally occupied Tibet since 1950, and is a key arms supplier to the Arab tribes committing genocide against the indigenous non-Arab African population in the Darfur region of Sudan. Not that the far Leftist London mayor would care about that.
