Is this too negative? Is it negative at all?

Ken Livingstone argues that Boris Johnson's election broadcast is wholly negative and backward looking; in contrast his campaign focuses on successes and looks to the future. That is his claim. Below is Boris' video, is this highlighting problems Londoners face, the issues they care about, that they will recognise, and putting solutions forward; or is it offering a skewed and negative view of London under Livingstone. As I am not a Londoner it is hard to comment, so can any Londoners help me out on this and tell me who is right and who is biased?

They are both biased, it is a political campaign, both will give a perception of London that suits their campaign. There is truth in both and exaggeration in both; so where is the surprise there?
