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.

    Labour shouldn’t offer cosmetic solutions for our education system

    Until told otherwise I am going to assume that all teachers have a deep and noble interest in the education of children and young people in Britain. There is, then, no need for them to put their hand on their heart or a bible or a framed photograph of Nicky Morgan and swear an oath to education. I mean how would that go exactly? “I solemnly swear that I absolutely have not fallen into teaching because it’s guaranteed work and […]

    Labour MP receives vile anti-semitic messages

    The Jewish Chronicle have reported that Luciana Berger MP and Louise Ellman MP have been subjected to anti-semitic tweets. Following the conviction of Garron Helm, who sent anti-semitic messages to Berger on Twitter – last night she faced further verbal online abuse. Messages sent to Berger included one that used the ‘jude’ – which in German means Jew. Another read “Only two places for Jews. The desert or in hell with their father the devil. #ExpelLucianaBerger” Berger has not responded to these […]

    George Osborne doesn’t accept living standards are falling

    Here’s one for the “what was he thinking?” files. George Osborne was interviewed by ITV news about today’s growth figures, yet when Economics Editor Richard Edgar noted that living standards are falling as wages have fallen behind inflation, the Chancellor disagreed with that fact, saying “I don’t accept that.” Here’s Elgar’s tweet: Living standards have fallen since 2010. So why won’t the Chancellor accept that? Is it because it punches a hole in his narrative about the British economy…?

    Farage has chosen to cosy up with the sort of political party that makes most of us feel sick

    Why do so many of us go canvassing and door-knocking in the rain? Or give up evenings and weekends for the Labour Party when we could be anywhere else. There’s always a candidate to support or a campaign to be won. But ultimately it’s about more than that – it’s about fighting for our values. We all get into politics to argue for what we think is right and to change our world bit by bit, day by day for […]

    What should Scottish Labour do?

    There is much talk in the Scottish media about a crisis in Scottish Labour. Some of it is of course froth (is the Scottish Daily Mail where we would seek advice in our best interest?). But some of it is substantial – based on the post-poll evidence, anything between 30-40% of Labour voters voted Yes in the referendum. The angst is also heightened by the surge in SNP membership to nearly 80,000, making them the third largest political party in […]
