SO I told my 1.7 million twitter followers (yeah 1.7million Piers - count 'em) NOT to vote for Ken Livingstone as London Mayor.
And I told them that despite the fact he is the official Labour Party candidate and I am a member of the Labour Party since my peerage.
Milliband was pleased but he hasn't thrown me out of the party. What a sap he is.
The truth is, I want to be London Mayor.
And I'd be better than newt loving Livingstone.
