Come Back Ken

Ken Livingstone suspended for four weeks.

Oi! Give us back our mayor!

I’m really quite angry about this. He was rude and offensive to a journalist. An annoying prick of a journalist who was making an arsehole of himself. And clearly someone who can give it out but cannot take it, which is a hypocrisy I cannot bear. Why should he apologise for hurting his feelings? Go cry at home Oliver Finegold. Being Jewish doesn’t exempt you from insult, and it’s actually quite offensive to others that you believe you can use your religion\race to duck behind your own shortcomings as a human being. Fuck you.

(Incidentally – I’m aware it wasn’t the Evening Standard that brought the action. But they turned it into a story when there wasn’t one in the first place. So the point remains.)

Just to remind you why some unelected body has seen fit to remove our democratically elected mayor for a month:

Ken Livingstone was recorded asking reporter Oliver Finegold if he is a “German war criminal”.

Mr Finegold replies: “No, I’m Jewish, I wasn’t a German war criminal. I’m quite offended by that.”

The mayor then says: “Ah right, well you might be, but actually you are just like a concentration camp guard, you are just doing it because you are paid to, aren’t you?”

Anyone who thinks that’s racist, or an insult directed at anyone other than Mr. Finegold and the Daily Mail group have a very limited intelligence. Come Back Ken!

    I absolutely agree with what you say there Dom. I am astounded that this suspension of an elected Mayor by an unelected Quango has taken place.

    I would hope that I am someone who would always try to see how something someone says may be offensive to someone else, but I am afraid I fail on this one. It seems to me that the analogy is in fact an accurate one.

    I hope Ken appeals.

    I agree,

    There seems to ba trend to run for cover behind a safety curtain of ‘modern political correctness’ which does little else, than generate devoloution.
    The person seems to be inteligent. but the people are falsely represented by the press, who seem to express an opinion, that i very rarely find myself endorsing.
    Winston Churchill, acclaimed as a great man, on many an occassion had spoke his mind with out fear of being ousted because it may upset a few individuals who felt the need to be exclusive, and different to the rest.
    you go ken!
