Beleagured Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone seems to be using the main website covering the Mayor’s Office, the GLA and other London bodies as his own personal rebuttal service.
There are 17 rolling links on the front page of the website, 10 of which are defending Livingstone in the face of fierce criticism by the Evening Standard, Channel 4’s Dispatches programme, BBC’s Politics Show and – let’s face it – anyone with a voice.
His tenure of the mayoralty has been shown to be shabby, deep in the mire with some very shady characters stretching well beyond London. Even his triumphant cheap fares for Londoners is being subsidised by some of the poorest people on the planet in Venezuela so that he can strut the world stage and dictator Hugo Chavez can find a friend.
Boris described Livingstone as being like Marlon Brando at the end of Apocalypse Now, yearning for the end. It’s an end which can’t come soon enough for Londoners.
