It was an extraordinary occasion. London Citizens is a large, multi-faith coalition devoted to "reweaving the fabric of society." Johnson, Livingstone, Berry and Paddick were asked to support four of their campaigns. In the grand setting of Westminster's Central Methodist Hall before a young and buzzing audience of almost 2,500 it wasn't going to be easy for any of them to say no. I've written a piece for the Guardian - check here for it later - which tells a fuller story of what was said. But to do proper justice to the proceedings would take many more words than I've time to write at present. Some other time, maybe. For now, though, a few video highlights. First, an opening song to set the tone.
I think Brian and The Blond enjoyed that, don't you? (Ken and Sian were concealed by the podium in case you were wondering) And soon Boris was supporting the London Living Wage. Please note the boos.
Then came Sian on the same subject...
Follwed by Brian...
And finally on wages, Ken. Note applause - he's already brought the policy in.
Now here are Boris and Sian on affordable housing...
And now the difficult one: Boris on amnesties. I think we've got that clear now.
Anyone for signing a Safer City initiative? Thought so.
Ken's closing speech.
Boris's closing speech (they were less cross with him by this point).
I love the "access" handshakes at the end. Dawkins fans would call that a faith group power grab, but I reckon its just smart politics.
