Alan Johnson Writes Love Poetry for Tessa ‘Kylie’ Jowell as London Mayor.

with 2 comments

Tessa is a Star: Labour’s Kylie!

Hat-Tip: The Strop.

It starts with a look,

Then a double take,

Then a smile,

A moment to work up the confidence and then they come over.

Tessa cannot leave the house,

without meeting new people,

who want to say hello.

I have seen this a hundred times,

and believe me it’s not normal –

no other politician inspires such warmth.
Tessa is a star.

She is Labour’s Kylie – everyone,

loves her,

and she only needs a first name.

She has a remarkable way,

with people,

that generates real affection.

But that’s not,

why I’m backing her to be Mayor.

I backed Tessa,

right from the start,


she has,

the right values to make London,

a fairer place to live.

Through Sure Start,

and the Olympics,

she has a record,

of delivery,

that is second,

to none, and I know she can beat the Tories.

And today, I’m more sure,

than ever

But it’s not just because the opinion polls show she’s the only candidate who can beat the Tories,

– though they do and by,

a country mile.

It’s because she has set out a genuinely compelling vision.

One London – where everyone can share in the city’s success.


Alan Johnson MP

  1. In my minds eye I overheard a young girl on the tube ask “whose Kylie, poor old Alan he needs to keep up, he should have stuck to delivery mail not second rate Blairites. Then his wife wouldn’t have done a bunk or should I say bunkup with his Scotland Yard bodyguard. I know that is low, but not as low as these Blairites scoops. One thing about the Corbyn stuff it has exposed them as yesterday’s people. Did Kylie sing that Al?
