Rainbow warrior

I miss the Times. Actually, I don't any more, because I pay for it. But still, the paywall has (for all its good reasons) led to the virtual online silencing of what remains the best comment team in the press. And that means that the following line, from Hugo Rifkind, just doesn't get the appreciation it deserves:

Remember the inaugural mayoral election of 2000? Remember the sheer implausibility of an electoral battle between a man who looked and sounded exactly like Zippy from Rainbow (Ken Livingstone) and a man who looked and sounded exactly like George from Rainbow (Frank Dobson)?

I am never going to be able to look at Ken Livingstone in quite the same way.
