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.

    Reaching new communities

    This article is from Our Labour, Our Communities – a pamphlet of 10 essays by Labour PPCs, published by LabourList in partnership with Lisa Nandy MP. I am proud to be standing as the candidate for my hometown of Hastings & Rye, but I am equally proud to stand as a parliamentary candidate who is also half Chinese and half British. My mother is Chinese Malaysian and came to this country 41 years ago to be a nurse in Hastings and continues to […]

    Labour could lose out by not making it’s stance on Trident clear

    Cutting Trident will be the price of support in a hung parliament. That’s the news reported from a meeting of the SNP, Plaid Cymru and Green leaders this week. With Labour’s slim lead and the SNP and Green vote threatening to impact on its share, this is a serious issue. Labour’s policy clearly states, ‘Labour has said that we are committed to a minimum, credible independent nuclear deterrent, delivered through a Continuous At-Sea Deterrent. It would require a clear body […]

    Is Cameron “frit” of TV debates? Let’s try the empty chair threat

    Lord Ashcroft has told him he shouldn’t have done it in 2010. Lynton Crosby has told him not to do it in 2015. It’s no surprise that David Cameron is trying to wriggle out of televised leader debates during the General Election – even though he has said he is willing to take part “in principle”. Time perhaps to dust off one of Margaret Thatcher’s favourite barbs “He’s frit.” Neil Kinnock tried it in 1992 to try to goad John Major into […]

    Flexibility makes for good work, strong families and thriving communities

    By Stephen Timms MP and Ian Murray MP The Christmas period reminds us that modern life can be busy, hurried and demanding. The pressures of work, demands of family life and hectic Christmas schedules can prove stretching as we juggle competing demands. Increasingly the need for flexible work is driven by the complex shape of people’s lives; as parents go to work, struggle to make ends meet, perform career roles, take their children to school and activities and try and carve […]

    Labour MP questions campaigning roles of publicly funded advisers

    As the start of the long campaign begins today, curbing the amount of money parties can spend between now and May 7th, Labour MP Jon Ashworth has sought to clarify what precautions are being taken to ensure publicly-funded government advisers are not using their time campaigning. Ashworth has sent a letter to senior civil servant Jeremy Heywood, asking him to answer a number of questions about what kind of campaigning activity was permitted and undertaken by special advisers (SpAds) in […]
