How deep is the rot?

If the resignation of the Rosemary Emodi, one of Livingstone’s race advisers, was an isolated event it would almost not be worth writing about. It isn’t, the catalogue of allegations surrounding Livingstone’s inner circle is long and getting longer.

Rosemary Emodi was initially defended by Livingstone and it seemed that he didn’t check the facts before jumping to her defence. This demonstrates loyalty and stupidity in at least equal measure.

Livingstone clearly feels that public money is his to spend, that public servants are paid by the state to do his personal and political bidding and that his inner circle are above the law. Those on the left who blindly defend him now, may well get find it harder to maintain their position in the future.
