DIARY: Ken’s animal magic is beginning to wear very thin

Thank you to all the PROs who have inundated PR Week with photographs such as those featured above. But now the elections are over, and Ken Livingstone is London’s first directly-elected mayor, perhaps the deluge will cease.

Thank you to all the PROs who have inundated PR Week with

photographs such as those featured above. But now the elections are

over, and Ken Livingstone is London’s first directly-elected mayor,

perhaps the deluge will cease.



For reasons best known to the PR industry, novelty pictures of Ken

throughout the campaign weren’t exactly rare. Sometimes, they were in

aid of a good cause, such as Action Research’s Touching Lives campaign;

some were shameless promotion, as in Nando’s chicKEN restaurants; and

others were just plain bizarre - thank you Worm Awareness Week.



And sometimes, it must be said, the pictures weren’t even particularly

amusing.



What is more interesting to note is that while the animal changes in

every photo, Ken’s suit appears to remain the exactly the same. PR Week

hopes this situation will be rectified now that London finally has an

ambassador to represent it to the world.
