You would think after the past few months’ news coverage that Ken Livingstone’s image was tattooed on the inside of most people’s eyelids.
Not so. Last week trendy coffee chain Aroma opened a new outlet in Kensington, London. To get the shop noticed the company used the services of a Livingstone looky-likey.
The impostor was not exactly “Red” Ken’s twin, but shoppers were nonetheless fooled, stopping to chat without noticing he was wearing a badge which read “Ken 4 Aroma”.
It just goes to show that people don’t care what Ken stands for, they just want to vote for him.
