If you were Ken and had just seen the YouGov polls which put Boris 11% ahead, (screams into hand whilst dancing on the spot) wouldn’t you be just a teeny weeny bit tempted to write a letter to Tony asking him to bail in and help out?
Grand statements, announcements in the press, exclusive interviews with key reporters, join him on a walk about, that sort of thing.
I bet the thought has crossed Ken’s mind. If Tony were ‘full on’ the Ken campaign over the next few day’s it would undoubtedly have an impact and be so newsworthy it would be a bit of a headline grabber.
People only remember the good times and Tony would carry enough nostalgia around with him to drift over the floaters.
You never know when you are going to need friends in this game do you?
