Why is Ken Livingstone still in Labour party, after another appearance on Press TV?

Jeremy Corbyn is now under huge pressure because of his failure to deal with the antisemitism in his party.  Six Labour councillors who were suspended for posting antisemitic messages have been  quietly let back into the Labour party.  

17,000 members have now quit Labour over the anti-Semitism row.   Pressure grows on Jeremy Corbyn as he deletes his Facebook account and twelve party staff are revealed to be in vile hate groups    Continue reading

How can antisemite Corbyn be allowed to lead Labour?

Added to his many failings,  Jeremy Corbyn can’t take pressure or abuse.  He histrionically lost his temper in Parliament yesterday at Tory whip Andrew Griffiths, a wag, who when Corbo was demanding more cash for the elderly, yelled “You should be be in care!” Corbyn went bananas, shouting, pointing and yelling about ageism. 

I cannot accept that Jeremy Corbyn is fit to comment on other politicians.  Continue reading

Assembly members dare to praise Ken. Let’s take a trip down Memory Lane, shall we?

At Mayor’s Question Time, some Labour Assembly members and members of the Green Party, including Jenny Jones, were praising the Mayoralty of Ken Livingstone.  Let’s take a trip down Memory Lane shall we? kengrin

Handling of public  finances. The Forensic Audit Panel, set up to investigate the failings of the London Development Agency, when Ken was Mayor, concluded “Our investigations have left us in no doubt that money has been misspent, on a massive scale, say tens of millions.  A click on the first link reveals proof from City Hall records that Ken Livingstone spent public funds on himself and his pals with an abandon that surpassed P. Diddy and Tom Cruise.  He treated City Hall like his own personal piggy bank.

Womens’ and gay rights:  Ken’s much vaunted support for womens’ and gay rights were given the lie through his support for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whose  views are here.  Ken worked for this man on Press TV and had to be prised from the job under protest. Ken’s close friendship with the appalling Sheikh Al Qaradawi did nothing for his image.  The Sheikh is homophobic, anti-semitic, accepts rape and violence against women and refuses to condemn female genital mutilation.  This is the man that Ken praised as “progressive”.

So disruptive was Ken’s attitude towards the Jewish and gay communities, the Times wrote a leader in protest.  The newspaper condemned him for playing divide and rule.

Then there was the little matter of Ken’s tax avoidance, on which he failed to lie himself out of trouble.  He made matters worse by trying to taint Boris with the same crime, and Bojo nearly punched his lights out. 

I find it disgusting and shocking that any member of the London Assembly, dubbed the home of democracy, could defend such a man, and Ed Miliband’s reputation is soiled because he did not speak out either, on some occasions even perpetrated the lies.   London had a narrow escape.   Another Ken mayoralty would have been a corrupt and utter disaster. To anyone who dares to praise the Mayoralty of Ken Livingstone  I have to say this.   “How could you!!!”

Peter Tatchell was right about Red Ken in 2004

Like many people,  I admire Peter Tatchell.  So it is not easy for me to say that I do not agree with everything Peter said about Ken Livingstone last week.

In July 2004, Peter Tatchell wrote this about Ken on his blog:  ““Ken Livingstone has sided with male Muslim misogynists and homophobes against women and gay Londoners,”

He was commenting on the Mayor of London’s decision to host controversial Muslim scholar, Dr Al-Qaradawi, and to invite him to a further conference at City Hall in October. Continue reading

Laurie Pennie’s reputation as a feminist is gone unless she gives up supporting Red Ken

Yesterday, journalist Laurie Penny appeared on Daily Politics hosted  by Andrew Neil, with another guest, Danny Finkelstein.  It was bad enough when Laurie blithely declared she could run RBS.  Her support for the mayoral candidacy of Ken  Livingstone betrayed such appalling ignorance, it’s hard to believe she can ever be taken seriously again.

The Labour Party is known for its hardcore feminism, and Harriet Harman pushes a line that many sensible woman reject.  But where is the opposition from Labour women to a Mayoral candidate who endorses Iranian extremists? Ken Livingstone invited Sheikh Al Qaradawi to City Hall in 2008, when he was Mayor. The Sheikh was denounced by, among others Peter Tatchell, who said:

“Qaradawi also sanctions domestic violence against disobedient wives; blames rape victims who do not dress with sufficient modesty; and supports the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation (which involves cutting the clitoris of young girls; denying them full sexual pleasure in later life).  Qaradawi’s anti-humanitarian views are a matter of public record on BBC Monitoring, Al Jazeera and Qatar TV, the Al- Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper – and in his own books, such as Modern Fatwas.” Continue reading

Great new movie in pre-production: Red Ken’s Henchmen

The double sided DVD, Hitler’s Henchman, was such a success a new movie is in pre-production.  Red Ken’s Henchman!  Hollywood beauties, are fighting for the part of Suzanne Lejeune, the French, historically misunderstood collaborator.  Suzanne slept with half the Nazi Party, and gave them the names of  French Resistance.  What a sweetie!  She wasn’t carrying out the work of Hitler!  She was reaching out to the Nazis. Opening scene:  Women, liberal Muslims, and the Jewish and gay communities are filmed crying like the North Koreans at death of Kim Jong-il, at the mere suggestion that Ken Livingstone might return to City Hall.

Scenes 2- 10:  (flashback to 2008).  Gay activist and freedom fighter Peter Tatchell remonstrates with the then Mayor of London Ken Livingstone for inviting homophobic, Holocaust denying misogynist Sheikh Al Qaradawi to City Hall as a guest as part of the reaching out process.  The Sheikh, who believes rape is OK!, female genital mutilation is a fashion statement, and giving any woman a smack in the mouth is necessary to put her in her place, is endorsed by charitable Ken as “progressive”.  The fun Sheikh likes slogans, such as  “Destroy the usurper Jews!”  As part of the reaching out process, wouldn’t you think that Ken would drop a hint to the press and voters that he thinks the Sheikh is, well a little extreme?  Not a word.  Crikey!  Through his silence, innocent Ken is giving the inadvertent impression he agrees with the Sheikh’s beliefs!  So mean that people don’t give him the benefit of the doubt!

How Red Ken sold out the Jewish and gay communities for cash

The Daily Telegraph has published an article revealing that Ken Livingstone made £284,582, selling out the London Jewish and gay communities.

The Telegraph said:  “Iran may be one of the last pariah states in the Middle East, but it has  proved lucrative for Ken Livingsto

Mandrake learns that Labour’s candidate to be the next mayor of London is sitting on a £284,582 fortune which he accumulated from sources including   the Iran-funded Press TV.

The latest accounts for Red Ken’s company, Silveta Limited, disclose that his   “cash at bank and in hand” increased to £319,083 last year, and was then swelledby a further £27,615 from debtors. He was able to leave £284,582 in   funds for the two shareholders: he and his wife, Emma Beal.”

The owners of Press TV deny the Holocaust and believe that gay people should be killed.  Ken gave up the well paid job allegedly only under extreme duress.

How Ken has the nerve to be Labour’s Mayoral candidate, I will never know.  He is not fit to run.
