Ken offers Boris an olive branch after mayoral dispute

Mr Livingstone later offered an olive branch to Mr Johnson by closing an attack website aimed at the Mayor as he warned the election race was getting "out of hand". He said:

"Those of us who are leading candidates in this election have a duty to the electorate to rein it in and direct it to the issues at stake for Londoners.

"I suggest to Boris Johnson therefore that he and I work together to raise the tone and spirit of this election."

A spokesman for Boris Johnson has said: "Boris Johnson has repeatedly made clear he pays all taxes in full. Ken Livingstone knows this because he has been personally told by Boris Johnson during a private conversation at a business hustings just two weeks ago.

“Mr Livingstone repeated these false claims today, knowing full well they are not true, in a desperate attempt to avoid answering serious questions over his own tax affairs".
