This is the laughometer from last night’s Westminster Labour Party mayoral hustings, held in the Stow Centre, Harrow Road.
As usual, tiny chuckles weren’t recorded.
We maintained our rule that to score, you had to get a proper laugh from a significant portion of the room.
It was a particularly dry night as far as laughs were concerned, at least from the candidates. Friend of Uncut and all-round man about town John McTernan chaired the event and kept the spirits up, dispelling the myth that he’s a dour Scotsman.
Ken Livingstone – 1
Oona King – 1
The results were taken by an experienced laughometer operator, who knows the difference between a titter and a roar.
