This was published briefly by a well-known and respected left of centre blogger, who shall remain nameless because s/he had the conscience to remove it quickly. But it does show the corrosive effect of partisan politics. Johnson, for whom I hold no candle, has not a whiff of financial impropriety about him, unlike Livingstone - dodgy grants to dodgy crony identity-group companies contributed to his fall, if fall he has. This image is defamatory, dishonest and contemptible.
I suspect, though, that there'll be a lot more of this sort of ad hominem, dishonest attack in the weeks to come. The left really is the ugly side of politics.
