    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.

    Thatcher wanted the ‘managed decline’ of Merseyside. I want to manage its renaissance

    Back in the 1980s, Margaret Thatcher’s government came close to writing off Merseyside. There was a serious conversation about leaving our city and its neighbours to ‘managed decline’ and the tender mercies of her economic shock therapy. As her Chancellor at the time, Geoffrey Howe, patronisingly put it: ‘We must not expend all our limited resources in trying to make water flow uphill.’ We’ve come a long way since then. Since 2010, Labour has had the privilege of running Liverpool […]

    Burnham emerges as LabourList readers’ favourite for Manchester Mayor

Of those who voted in our survey, 45 per cent opted for Burnham, who came second in last year’s leadership election. Tony Lloyd finished some way behind with 22 per cent, while Ivan Lewis received the support of 12 per cent […]

    It’s not the shared economy, stupid – but it does require a collective response

    It is often described as the sharing economy. It sounds very cuddly. All of us on a patchwork sofa, sharing a nice cup of tea… Or it’s the gig economy – because Uber drivers are all creative artists enjoying their freedom to perform… I prefer to call it the new intermediaries economy. Not as cuddly or cool but more accurate. When you get into an Uber cab the driver is not sharing her car with you, she is selling you […]

    Blair: Brexit would hit living standards of society’s poorest most

    Tony Blair has weighed in on the debate over Brexit, warning that leaving the European Union would hit living standards and hit the poorest in society most. The former Prime Minister appears to make an appeal to Labour supporters – seen as an important swing demographic in the vote – in two interventions today. While Blair is a divisive, and even simply unpopular, figure in the modern Labour Party, there are hopes that he is still seen as a political “big beast” and […]

    Patronising people with patriotism will not win 2020

    Labour will need to win over the socially conservative voters of today in win in 2020 – but flag waving will not make up for a lack of credible policy on welfare and spending and a real understanding of the hardship faced by working people throughout the country. Widely reported research by Jon Cruddas this week suggested that since 2005, voters that were sympathetic to more socially conservative ideas have been increasingly more likely to select UKIP over Labour on […]
