Labour for Boris
After the report of what Ken Livingstone said about Jewish Londoners, I said the other day on Twitter that, as a non-Jewish Labour voter, I would be voting for Boris Johnson in the London mayoral election in May.
A reader asked me to explain. That might take too long. Instead, here are some Livingstone quotations, thanks to my friend Julie:
“World wide capitalism kills more people everyday then Hitler did. And he was crazy.”
“Bring a private prosecution against Tony Blair for war crimes … devote your life to that.”
“I opposed the war in Iraq. I took the last Labour government to court five times.”
“I never voted for New Labour. I never voted for Tony Blair and I stood against his awful government”
It was a hard decision last time. But not this time.
