Negative campaign from Ken

A top tip from Caesar on politics:

One of the things I've noticed about politics is that the losing side often becomes deeply critical of the opposition without offering something new or different. John Major did this in 1997. Mugabe has done it in Zimbabwe. Now Ken Livingstone is doing this towards Boris.

I disapprove. Negative smear campaigning is really what is not needed in politics. The media does that enough already. To win in politics your message must be positive and visionary but also with a sense of stability and recognition of what works well already.
