Today the Mayor has launched a new electioneering website and a set of online ads – which I saw first on Iain Dale’s blog. The artwork for the new site/ads owes much to the artwork for the Low Emission Zone ads that went with the £1.9 million LEZ consultation and another million or so of ads to announce the start of the scheme.

London’s taxpayers have spent £ millions building up this lovely Teletubbies green and blue branding and getting it established in people’s minds and the Mayor is simply stealing it for his campaign. This is passing off, plain and simple.

These guys are just bandits.
