NotesSee WF0215 for original artwork. News: 14 Nov: What has been abundantly clear in the
past few weeks is the horror with which the Labour leadership contemplates a Livingstone
mayoralty, and what it perceives would be a return to the "gesture politics" of his Greater
London Council. The gloves came off for the "Stop Ken" whispering campaign - a campaign
which seemed to be driven by Downing Street. There were reports, for instance, that an
interview for BBC's Newsnight in which Mr Livingstone criticised the Blair Government,
would be used as the "silver bullet" to end his candidature. The events that unfolded after
Frank Dobson was officially endorsed by the Prime Minister as his favoured candidate have
not reflected well on New Labour - or Old. [The Independent]
