I see that Livingstone’s army of press officers have been busy.
Not only have these publicly funded people taken the time to rebut my comments about Livingstone’s political activities (is that allowed?), but they have also been helping him in his attempts to gag the media.
According to his press release Ken Livingstone has written to Andy Duncan, the Chief Executive of Channel 4 television, calling on him to pull the Dispatches programme scheduled to be shown this evening.
Livingstone claims that the Dispatches programme is biased because Martin Bright wrote in the Standard saying ‘The voters of London should kick Ken out when they go to the polls in May.’ He is mixing cause and effect, assuming that Bright made the programme because he wants rid of Livingstone. I suspect that he wants rid of Livingstone because of what he found out making the programme.
I didn’t hear calls from Livingstone to leave Boris alone when elements of the media went sniffing around after him. Funny how so many on the left of politics advocate censorship when the news isn’t good for them.
