Caracas Ken Wants the Oil Again

If Labour’s candidate for Mayor was anyone but Ken, Boris would be in some trouble, but instead their candidate for Mayor is a gift that keeps on giving. Ken has told London24 that he wants to reintroduce his bonkers oil deal with socialist dictator Hugo Chavez. In the face of raised eyebrows and stifled laughs Ken rants against the CIA for spreading misinformation about the dying Venezuelan leader. Ken was on Chavez’s books as an adviser after he lost to Boris… Does he have any interests to declare on such a deal?

UPDATE:

Warm words…

        A campaign was launched yesterday for drastic action to prevent Britain’s population reaching an ‘unsustainable’ 70million.
        The ‘e-petition’ calls on David Cameron to clamp down on immigration, which is seen as the major factor behind the rising numbers.
        Organisers Migration Watch are seeking the 100,000 signatures needed to force a Parliamentary debate on the issue.

          It’s the ONLY factor. The population would be shrinking if it wasn’t for unwanted imports. The welfare state is the #1 source of people trafficking.

            I was in my local bank branch yesterday and witnessed an illegal immigrant attempting to claim he was legal and demanding a loan, on the spot, with no papers to back him up. The poor girl on the Lloyds desk, barely able to cope with the barrage of demands from this desperate tosser, is at the sharp end of demonstrating how Bliar and Brown deliberately and for naked political reasons, allowed the human tide of illegals and foreign benefit fraudsters to swamp our banking, health, and social services.

            Allegedly, it was one Jakob Strawinski who put this scheme to the two PMs. He’s better known as Jack Straw and is one of the most unsavoury and cunning of the abysmal bunch of dealers and wankers who ran our country into the ground over 13 miserable years. The fukcer should be hanged by the thumbs and wrapped in barbed wire until his eyeballs pop out.

          If people used a different word to describe the net economical sustainability of population flows between sovereign tax systems ,

    Its nice to see Ken still living in Marxist La-La Land, where all dwell in utopian splendour created by socialist ideals.

    And where the leadership can have their little seraglios and the little people know their place and accept their lot, whilst the leaders loll in luxury being progressive. Or was that regressive and repressive.

    Chavez is a corrupt scumbag who hopefully will still be alive to get his comeuppance.

    Venezualan oil isn’t the most sought after, either. It’s among the heavier crudes, sticky to transport and low in the lighter fractions. If the refiners really wanted it, they’d go and get it themselves without needing help from Livingston.

      That was the case with the old GLC. But that was because they had the power to give wasters other people’s money. The Mayor’s office doesn’t have this power, that is why Ken lost in 2008, he just can’t bribe enough people to vote for him anymore. And given that Livingstone’s type of voters are the type of people, less likely to bother to vote anyway, without a financial incentive, they just won’t bother.
