Boost for Livingstone's election chances

by Simon Harris

Ken Livingstone's election chances have received a potential boost thanks to his cosy relationship with Green candidate Jenny Jones. The London Green Party urged members to give Livingstone their second preference vote.

The decision was hardly a surprise - Livingstone appointed Jones as his deputy during his first term as mayor and plans to make her his cycling advisor if elected next month.

Meanwhile Boris Johnson's supporters accused Livingstone of making "false claims" in the ongoing row about fares. Livingstone wants to cut fares by 7 per cent, claiming Transport for London has a secret £336m surplus. The Conservatives insist the money is earmarked for investment.
