Beyond their Ken

There is still much media kerfuffle over Ken Livingstone's claim that Hitler "did a deal with the Zionists". The BBC reports

Ex-London mayor Ken Livingstone faces a new investigation into his comments about Hitler, Jeremy Corbyn says.

The Labour leader said that since being suspended on Tuesday night, Mr Livingstone had "continued to make offensive remarks which could open him to further disciplinary action".

These will now be considered by the party's ruling executive committee.

Mr Livingstone has continued to defend his comments about Hitler and Zionism and vowed to fight his suspension.

Inevitably one is reminded of the video below which apparently once adorned Jeremy Corbyn's YouTube page. An astounding party in so many ways.

Really not much to do with antisemitism at all, more to do with who has power in the Labour party. A bit disgusting really.

All helps keep Labour out for a decade.

Ken has found in his latest interview a way of not mentioning Hitler he now calls him Mr H, my first dog was named "H" and was far more reliable than Livingstone when it came to answering a name.

Roger - yes, any ism could serve the same purpose.

James - perhaps, although memories are short.

Wiggia - Ken seems to need a dose of publicity every now and then. Unfortunately he gets it.
