Ken's not so secret weapons

For some reason, Tessa Jowell has chosen to tell the Guardian, that Tony Blair and Alastair Campbell have been quietly helping Ken Livingstone's re-election campaign.

It brings to mind Blair's campaign for the Labour Leadership in 1994 when he could not let it be known that Peter Mandelson was on board. It's probably a truism that letting it be known that you're getting help from arch spinners like Blair and Campbell, described by Jowell as "the best in the business", doesn't help your credibility.
