From this afternoon’s LBC 97.3 programme, during a discussion about their common enemy, the right-wing press, between Ken Livingstone and his guest, Alistair Campbell:

Ken: It’s quite interesting at the moment, since Boris Johnson became Mayor, there’s been a real flurry of blogs, on the internet, and in actual fact, they’re doing a much better job of scrutinising what he’s doing than the newspapers are.

Ali: Ah, you see, the newspapers have got a vested interest in not giving Boris a hard time, because they gave him such an easy ride in getting him there.

Of course, not all the blogs waited until after he was elected to scrutinise him ;) Nice to know we (and others) are doing our job, anyway.

    Hmm…Alistair Campbell…*vents spleen*.
    On the subject of the press, though, I’ve seen two articles critical of Boris this week, and two more saying “Leave our Boris alone”.
