Poor old Livingstone, here is a extract from Matthew Bell’s Independent on Sunday diary from yesterday:
Not since Ted Heath has there been such a sulk in politics. Nine months after he
lost the mayoral elections, Ken Livingstone is still sore as a bear. Tomorrow
Boris Johnson opens the new Docklands Light Railway extension to Woolwich, a
project Ken spent years getting off the ground. Cheesed off that Boris will take
the credit, Ken staged a separate launch yesterday. “This is the most
significant transport development since the development of the docks,” he told
me from Woolwich. “It would be nice if we could have a launch of this sort every
couple of years, but Boris has stopped all the projects we had planned, except
for Crossrail, which he is obliged to go along with by the Government.” Ken went
on in this vein for some time. Shouldn’t he just, like, get over it?
