Boris Johnson is 'formidable', says Ken Livingstone (James Kirkup, 08/04/2008, Daily Telegraph)

Ken Livingstone said yesterday that Boris Johnson was a "formidable opponent" after a new poll put the Conservative candidate for London mayor 13 points ahead of him.

The YouGov poll, which gave Mr Johnson 49 per cent and Mr Livingstone 36 per cent, came amid a new round of personal attacks between the two main candidates in the May 1 election. Mr Livingstone said Mr Johnson's high public profile helped his candidacy.
