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.

      “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.

    “So long, it’s been good to know you” – Austin Mitchell’s farewell video

    As LabourList reported earlier, Great Grimsby MP Austin Mitchell has announced his decision to stand down at the next election. He won the seat in a by-election in 1977 – back when Jim Callaghan was Prime Minister. To coincide with his announcement, Mitchell has made a farewell video to Parliament and the people of Grimsby. There’s a healthy dose of sentimentality, a couple of jokes, and even a montage. Before entering Parliament, Mitchell worked as a broadcast journalist, and it […]

    Veteran MP Austin Mitchell to step down

    Grimsby MP Austin Mitchell is stepping down from Parliament in 2015 after 37 years.

He told his constituency of his decision to leave the Commons at a meeting last night. Writing for the Yorkshire Post, Mitchell said: “I’m standing down because I’m old and for no other reason. To be honest I’d […]

    In defence of class war

    UKIP and specifically its leader Nigel Farage are finally finding themselves under the glare of media scrutiny rather than simply the spotlight for once. The Times has been exposing (£) Farage’s alleged misuse of his expenses as an MEP and the party of out are not very happy about it. In response, UKIP have published a list of Times journalists, their links to the Conservative Party and their educational backgrounds. Farage has also sworn never to deal with the Times again. The […]

    UN report shows we must take bold action on climate change

    The Fifth Assessment report from the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) could not be clearer. Catastrophic climate change can be prevented if all countries, rich and poor, make the transition to a low carbon economy, and that this can be achieved without damaging economic growth. The IPCC has provided overwhelming and compelling scientific evidence that climate change is real, that it is caused by human activity and that it will have disastrous consequences if urgent action is […]

    From food banks to fair pay

    We all know that politicians love to talk about ‘fairness’.  Hardly anyone will disagree that people should be paid fairly for the work they do.  But scratch beneath the surface, and there are big political differences. In today’s Britain, hundreds of thousands of people don’t earn enough to feed their families without turning to food banks.  New figures released today by the Trussell Trust show that in 2013-14, their food banks gave emergency food supplies to over 913,000 people.  This […]
