Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    Ken Livingstone attracts controversy again

    It's not usually very long between controversies surrounding the London mayor, Ken Livingstone. But I guess that's why cockneys love him: Livingstone attacks 'scumbag' Standard

    Mr Livingstone repeated his question and then asked: "What did you do? Were you a German war criminal?" Finegold told the mayor that he was Jewish and therefore found the remark offensive, before asking again how the event had gone. Mr Livingstone replied: "Arr right, well you might be [Jewish], but actually you are just like a concentration camp guard, you are just doing it because you are paid to, aren't you?" Finegold: "Great, I have you on record for that. So, how was tonight?" Mr Livingstone: "It's nothing to do with you because your paper is a load of scumbags and reactionary bigots." Finegold: "I'm a journalist and I'm doing my job. I'm only asking for a comment." Mr Livingstone: "Well work for a paper that doesn't have a record of supporting fascism."
    Oh, if only more politicians said what they really thought, wouldn't that be a breath of fresh air. See all recent "A Logical voice" posts
