Still More Outstanding Bad Judgement From Ken Livingstone
Occaisonally Ken Livingstone takes time off from bothering reptiles, to display differing degrees of bad judgement; so bad is Ken’s judgement he can only have studied this particualr political shortcoming at the George Galloway school of bad judgement.
Barely had the 2012 campaign got underway then Ken displaying all the dexterity of a one legged man at an ass kicking contest, got embroiled in the row at the Rottenborough of Tower Hamlets run by Lutfur Rahman and his coterie of Radical Islam Councillors. Rahman is politically toxic, too toxic even for the weak Labour party run by the strange egg creature from Fraggle Rock who sometimes appears to be Ed Miliband; too toxic even for a weak leader to be forced to reinstate.
Ken is 100% behind Rahman, who should Ken get elected, will doubtless get some very well paid job furthering the cause of politically correct rottenboroughs.
On December 7th Ken selected Val Shawcross to be his running mate, fortunately not in the biblical sense; just 8 days later Shawcross was photographed picketing with members of the TSSA Union.
However Ken’s latest “bad judgement” tops even the dizzy heights he reached with Rahman and Shawcross.
Ken Livingstone was today accused of showing “a lack of judgment” after it emerged he has been paid thousands of pounds to front a programme on Iranian state television.
He has presented seven shows on the English-language Press TV channel, three of which have been broadcast since he became Labour’s London mayoral candidate in September.
The government-funded international news network was launched by Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2007 and is run by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting.
Another tip Livingstone picked up from George Galloway, get in to bed with Middle Eastern dictators and holocaust deniers.
The criticism of Mr Livingstone follows calls for his expulsion from Labour in October, after he campaigned openly alongside Tower Hamlets mayor Lutfur Rahman, who had been deselected by the party over alleged links to extremism.
Mr Livingstone first appeared on Press TV in March 2009, standing in for former Respect MP George Galloway. Previous presenters on the channel have been paid about £500 per show. Books reviewed on his
Epilogue programme include Zionist Israel And Apartheid South Africa, The Invention Of The Jewish People, and Israel And The Clash Of Civilizations: Iraq, Iran And The Plan To Remake The Middle East.
The subject matter of the books alone is enough, to ask the question: “Is Ken Livingstone fit to be Mayor of London for a third term?”
