For the first few months of the unofficial mayoral campaign Livingstone could not heap enough praise onto Brian Paddick. He described him as being full of good ideas and someone who he agreed with on most issues. Livingstone was clearly trying to woe the Lib Dem second preference vote.
But not any more!!!!!
Livingstone has a new best friend. Someone who has already promised him her second preference votes, Sian Berry. Poor old Brian Paddick, he's not flavour of the month any more.
And just in case you thought the relationship would just fizzle out without any public spat, think again. Paddicks ex-best mate sticks the knife in, Paddick responds and then Berry gets stuck in too. They are all at it over on the Guardian's Comment is Free blog.
Their supporters must be so proud.
