Don’t take my word for it

As you may have noticed I don’t think too highly of Ken Livingstone, I suspect the feeling is mutual. I have written on a number of occasions about his unsuitability to be mayor, a list of them can be found here.

But when a Conservative warns you about Livingstone it is easy for people to say “well he would say that wouldn’t he!”

Well, don’t take my word for it. You can read what other left wingers have said about Livingstone here, here and here. Not good news for the current Mayor of London.

  1. With regard to the reports from certain newspapers which you have linked to it should be pointed out that the Greater London Authority does not politically vet potential or existing employees, nor carry records regarding their political views, and it would indeed be unlawful and a breach of employment and human rights for it to do so. The only important, and lawful, criteria regarding the record of GLA staff is to be found in policies that have been successfully delivered. Mr Atma Singh was removed from his job in the GLA for failure to meet a request for assistance from the Mayor’s Office from the Metropolitan Police Anti-Terrorist Squad, for failure to inform the Mayor’s Office that such a request for assistance from the anti-terrorism police had been made, for failure to contact the Mayor’s Office during the terrorist attacks on London on 7 July and 21 July 2005, and further matters.Details of the work of the senior GLA staff, that have directly contributed to making London a more successful city, can be found here: http://www.london.gov.uk/view_press_release.jsp?releaseid=15355

  3. Does the GLA not have rules about staff and elected officials being drunk in charge or a city? I know if I was accused of drinking while representing my business there would be an investigation. Bob and Ken are clearly a waste of money and I am fed up with funding their drinking habits. I hope ‘GLA spokesperson’ can clear up why official investigations have not been launched into these acts as well as the racist taunts used by our mayor.The only thing worse would be funding Boris’s drinking habit, although I understand he has gone teetotal until he is elected.World class city, world class oafs for mayor.
