Fresh from backing the Euro, Gordon Brown and AV, Eddie Izzard is backing Ken Livingstone. Nick Ferrari had Messrs Izzard and Livingstone on his LBC programme this morning. Livingstone joked that the man with the reverse Midas touch should take Boris Johnson out for a drink and poison him...

Nick Ferrari to Eddie Izzard: Eddie do you have any political ambitions?

Izzard: I would like to run for Mayor or MP in 2020.

Ferrari: If you could go for a drink with Ken, Boris or Brian Paddick who would it be?

Izzard: Ken.

Ken Livingstone: But you could take Boris and put poison in his drink.

This mayoral race will be fun...
