Watson admits voters dislike Ken

Watson admits voters dislike Ken
Labour campaign chief Tom Watson has admitted many voters dislike the party's London mayoral candidate Ken Livingstone.

Speaking to LBC radio today, he urged voters to "hold your nose" and vote for Mr Livingstone, adding:

“There is a section of people out there who say that if there was a general election tomorrow, they would vote Labour. But in the mayoral election, they say they’d currently vote for Boris because they either like him – he’s a nice, charismatic guy — or they don’t like Ken.

“Our task in the next week is to convince those people that if you vote for Boris, then you’re also giving a vote of confidence to David Cameron and the economy, and if you vote for Ken, then you’re sending a message to David Cameron."
