Bailey, a current London Assembly member, trailed Khan in the polls by more than 20 per cent earlier this year and faced calls in a June Financial Times article from anonymous Tory grandees to quit the race. He also told City A.M. after the speech that Khan “regularly lies to Londoners”. Since then, the Conservative Campaign Headquarters (CCHQ) has increased its support for Bailey and brought in a new team to run his campaign.center_img A spokesperson for the mayor said: “This is complete rubbish and really desperate stuff from the Tory candidate who simply has the wrong values for London and is lashing out with personal attacks in desperation.” Bailey told City A.M. after a speech that Khan had pulled a “confidence trick” on Londoners and had been an habitual liar as mayor.
