We Can Thank Ken For That

    Need a nasty Islamist hugged? One who hates homosexuals and would like them all killed? Yes we Ken!

    • Dan Filson

      Pathetic Tory racist troll. People can see through your kind.

      • Shaun Pilkington

        Why is it racist to point out that Ken likes people who want to kill homosexuals?

        • treborc1

          Idiot

          • MattWales

            What is wrong with you people? Ken did hug an islamist who wanted homosexuals killed.

            Also throwing terms about ‘rascist’ around when it doesn’t even apply is beneath contempt.

          • John Dore

            Matt they’re all the same, when their guy does it its ok if anyone else were to do the same they’re up in arms. Being of the left is more about name calling and who’s in your club.

            treborc1 you’re the idiot.

      • Shaun Pilkington

        But not racist to say that Jews have too much money to vote Labour?

      • John Dore

        Pathetic left pratt. People can see through your tribal kind.

    • ThePurpleBooker

      That is why Ken is an atheist and that is why Ken has been fighting for LGBT rights for nearly 40 years, and doing demos against Section 28 – which was a law introduced and still supported by the Conservative Party!

  • Ian Stewart

    Is it wrong to point out that Boris Johnson and his supporters have been running a divisive, negative, and frankly racial-based campaign to keep Livingstone out sine 2008?
    Ken has his faults, but he has never been allowed to get away with the blatant breaking of promises and mismanagement that Johnson has.

    • Hugh

      “If I am lucky enough to be elected as
      London’s first mayor and bearing in mind that I have already served 5
      years as leader of the GLC, I would not seek to serve more than one
      term.” Livingstone 1998.

      Boris is merely trying to help him not break that promise again.

    • KonradBaxter

      What has been Boris’ racial based campaign?

      We all know of Ken’s words regarding Jewish people but what were Boris’?

  • M Cannon

    Having seen the video, no wonder he lost.  Good riddance, too.

    The tennis match that reveals the Tories’ re-election strategy

    David Cameron’s fundraising takes place in secretive opulence amongst the world’s super rich. This week we saw the extent of his reliance of those who operate in a different world to hardworking families concerned with paying their bills. The Conservative Party has taken a reported £1 million from Russian backers since David Cameron has been leader.  In 2008 David Cameron said, ‘Russian armies can’t march into other countries while Russian shoppers carry on marching into Selfridges’, and yet as Russian […]

    Keeping childcare high on the agenda

    Recent headlines that childcare will be a key battle ground in the General Election will come as no surprise to those of us who have been knocking on doors and speaking with mums and dads in our communities. Time after time, when I’m listening to families on the doorstep, the cost of childcare comes up as a reason for why they are struggling to afford to work. As the summer holidays start, this is particularly true. Research from the Family […]

    We are the only people who can stop Murdoch’s power growing

    After the parliamentary inquiries, Leveson, and the criminal trials, it sometimes feels like nothing has changed at Rupert Murdoch’s News UK. The grim case of Tulisa Contostavlos shows that Murdoch’s people will still fit up a celebrity if it sells papers. When I read Mazher Mahmood’s Sun on Sunday drugs sting, I thought of poor Sean Hoare. Sean was a brave man. He was the first former News of the World journalist to have the guts to admit to phone hacking. He was an […]

    Independence? UKIP can’t even spell it

    Slow clap for UKIP, who have put out a leaflet in Blackpool in which they’ve managed to spell their own name wrong. Proudly proclaiming themselves as the “UK Indepencence Party”, the leaflet has been delivered to voters for the Clifton by-election taking place today. Maybe their campaigning against “Eurocrats” has just been a typo all along.

    Company pulls out of workfare scheme days after Osborne visit to promote it

    A business in Bristol has pulled involvement with the Government’s controversial workfare programme, only days after Chancellor George Osborne paid them a visit to publicise the scheme. Byteback IT Solutions welcomed Osborne earlier this month for an opportunity to publicise the Help to Work programme, where long-term unemployed must work on placements in order to receive their benefits. However, after campaigners took to Byteback’s social media sites to protest, they decided to terminate their involvement, saying they had been “ill-informed” […]
