Flashback: Ken Can’t Hide His Lying Eyes

The old ones are always the best. In a week where Ken Livingstone’s integrity and honesty has fallen somewhat short, Guido was reminded of one of the most blatant examples of dishonesty displayed by the former Mayor. When asked about his age and health by Total PoliticsKen claimed “I still don’t need glasses”. Really?


  1. 1
    Deal says:

    Ken should be taken outside and shot in front of his comrades.

  2. 2
    Andrew Efiong says:

    He’s been known to turn a blind eye towards Lee “Grasper” Jasper.

  3. 3
    Anonymous says:

    Ken doesn’t need glasses…apparently drinks directly from the bottle.

  4. 4
    Dudley Zoo says:

    Ken needs a nappy, he is a big socialist baby who sucks at the tit of the productive

  5. 5
    Mike Litorus says:

    They’re not glasses, they are safety goggles for when the next lie blows up in his face.

  6. 6
    Eric Joyce says:

    I need a drink.

  7. 7
    The Reds will rise again... says:

    Can’t he SEE he is making himself LOOK ridiculous…..

    A bit like all those foreigners who will now be given free NHS treatment for Aids. Nice one Dave – it’s not as if life saving drugs are aleady rationed on the NHS for the indigenous population so the more the merrier. Deficit, what deficit?

  13. 13
    Dirty right wing gutter press says:

    We are so sorry for our mistakes. Everyone should buy the Mirror from now on as they have not been embroiled in this appalling conduct.

  14. 14
    Frank says:

    If Boris and Ken are the best candidates London can produce, then London deserves to becaome a Third World dump.

  15. 15
    Red Ken ( pond life ) Livingscum says:

    The Supreme Leader of N.Korea is Kim Jong un; when I am Supreme Leader of London again you can call me Ken Rong ‘un

    Ladies make passes

    Ogden Nash (almost) was right, eh Ken?

    Spamwatch says:

    I wonder if they get paid per comment or they are just trying to get a paid internship at Labour HQ?

  21. 21
    TheRealJoePublic says:

    To be fair, they are cosmetic implants, they were all out of tits when he went to be ‘enhanced’.

  22. 22
    a non says:

    Thought he was a teat-totaller.

  23. 23
    Liam Byrne ( aka Baldemort ) says:

    There are no paid internships at Liebour HQ.

    There’s no money left, remember ?

  24. 24
    sockpuppet #4 says:

    Which life saving drugs? The ones that don’t really work but get a lot of press “somehow”.

  25. 25
    Sophie says:

    Thats the Islamic Republic of Tower Hamlets to you.

    Still, no doubt Dave has the unelected & unelectable Baroness Warsi promising the Grand Imam Mayor all sorts of “incentives” if he can deliver the block vote for Boris.

  26. 26
    Handyc*ck (Teen Fondler) says:

    Ken, Boris, Silvio Berlusconi and I are 4 of a kind, ocean going shaggers. Boaz.

    Are you here all week?

  28. 28

    Livingstone’s ego is in inverse proportion to his interlect.

    Nice to see that the useless fucking Tories are in favour of laying out the red carpet to Aids sufferers worldwide.

    Labour troll my arse! I don’t doubt that Labour would sign us up to this nonsense as well but you’d expect the Tories to hold the nation’s pursestrings just that little bit tighter.

  32. 32
    V1le Labour ruined my Country says:

    Why don’t we just give money to the whole world, I really love paying so much tax to be hoovered up by spongers. We need a new movement to “persuade” these spongers of the error of their ways, maybe a baseball bat would help.

    Loungelizard says:

    That’s Red Ken Livingstone top middle. The other shots are of his evil twin brother Fingers The Fence Livingstone. Last I heard he was looking after a couple of retired police motorbikes until he could find them new owners.

    corned beef says:

    Believe it or not anonymous I worked for the Health service for 10 years after qualifying spending as much time fighting for patients to get their required treatment while being opposed by some jumped up Socialist bureaucrat refusing it.
    All commiserations for the state you find yourselves in today. Unfortunately the hard choices required to sort out your present problems that would return preferential treatment to residents is being diluted by the LibDem voice in the Coalition.
    It will not last forever I hope

  42. 42

    Long may it remain so named.

    Mandelson – who is not wrong all the time – described Ken’s ego as “bigger than the London Eye”.

    did i just witness Tom Watson make a complete fool of himself on sky ??

    “i think we should question how someone with links to the met got a horse”

    It was abit of low point for Tom , had he got out of the chair , phoned the met or any number of forces that have police horses , he would have anyone who can offer the suitable level of care , is elleigble for home a retrired police horse . At somthing like £150 a week for livery its hardly somthing most people could manage . To suggest it has been some sort of gift for wrong doings , isnt just factually wrong , its the sort of oppertune in correctness that some reporters are on the wire for .

    Tin foil hat for not understanding how benevolent care for retired horses is a way of mitaigating them being shot for having no further working life ……..

  53. 53
    Patty O'Furniture says:

    Thatcher or Simpson?

    Not necessarily. My wife has just flown abroad to get the tests she knew her indolent and incompetent GP was denying her access to. Turns out the ‘psychosomatic’ symptoms were pheumonia. When she gets back, diagnosis and evidence in hand, we shall first change our GP and second try to get the incompetent, patronizing buffoon struck off: though no doubt the useless Britsh medcial establishment will rally round and pretend it is a level of incompetence that any of them could have shown, so nothing should be done.

    Do not assume the entire world is coming here to use the NHS: so much of the world works in it the word is out that it is not worth touching with a barge pole unless you are desperate and poor.

    Shame we don’t have the option for retired MPs – oh of course we do, it’s the HoL with expenses….. silly me.

    We have been assured that Ken is very good at peculation.

    Can’t you just give it a break Guidedog?

    Red Ken is yesterday’s man. He is not going to be reelected just like Dave.

    Londoners just have to get used to more of bungling Boris with his cost neutral bikes.

    No politician in his right mind wants the poisoned chalice that is London. When those Games finish there will be all hell to pay.

    Why else do you think we have been left with two hopeless candidates.

  67. 67
    The Quite Man says:

    Only a yes vote accepted.

    Jane Birkin from Paris says:

    Ken and Boris are two of the biggest slimeballs going.

    No girl is safe when they are about.

    Do not turn your back when either of them are around!

    Neither Cameron nor Millipede have even thought to protect good old London girls from these wandering hands.

    Protocols should be in place to ensure that neither of them are left alone with a woman unaccompanied.All meetings with women need to be logged centrally.

    Simple Health and Safety measures need to be applied.

    As a young fellow working at parliament On more than one occassion I felt like Simon Hughs was doing a little mental undressing of me.
    Maybe a coincidence but a couple of homo erotic mags were found in the gents toilet not a million miles from his office.
    Now we hear about his phone calls to sex chat lines.
    I suggest Simon you didn’t get the Lib Dems leaders Job not because you are a Homosexual but because you are obviously a ‘dirty old man’ more concerned with your cock than politics.

    Red Ken ( pond life ) Livingscum says:

    Yes. Liebour’s red rose.

  80. 80
    Stinkfinger says:

    After Paddy Pantsdown the womaniser and Charles Kennedy the drunkard did Simon Hughs really think the Lib Dems would take a chance with him as leader?

    If Simon Hughs is an example of the quality of victim in this phone hacking scandal then it sounds to me like the press were doing a good fucking job.

  81. 81
    nellnewman says:

    No I rather think Ken’s political career is in it’s death throes.

    Not sure what he’ll do when he finally realises he’s not going to be getting back on the gravy train – perhaps he’ll have a stall on a market somewhere with one of those sleight of hand games that you see abroad conning the gullible out of their money.

  82. 82
    Jane Birkin from Paris says:

    Handycock should wash behind his scrotum three times a day with a brillo pad.

    I hope he is not standing for fucking mayor.

    A few tweaks of the hair from a qualified tonsorialist, a week’s worth of slight moustache, and he’ll look like what he wants to be – Heinrich Himmler.

    Another great idea from the “Conservatives” – free HIV treatment for illegal immigrants on the NHS. I don’t know why we bother to have border contols at all. Just open the floodgates and let all the scumbags of the world into the country.

    The Coalition may be rubbish but think how much worse it would be under Labour says:

    Labour opened the “floodgates” in 1998 when they passed the Human Rights Act but then again who can forget one of Bliar’s greatest soundbites when warned of the risk of floods of citizens to UK from the new access countries….”I do not expect more than 5,000 in total to come to the UK !” I think he meant 5 million

    wankrupt says:

    It’s tribalism. I’m the same, I will never vote for Labour on account of the fact that they bankrupt the nation every time they’re elected with their dumb tax and spend mentality. Call me old fashioned, but I find that slightly beyond the pale.

    liars or incompetents, take your pick says:

    Remember when we signed up to accept the citizens of the new member countries years before France and Germany would accept them? They had seven years grace I think it was to prepare, but Labour thought that this island wasn’t crowded enough already, the wankers. Tony McNulty, who was immigration minister at the time, said he did not expect more than 13,600 incomers in the first year. I think it turned out to be more like 500,000. You could not make it up.

  110. 110
    are you blind? says:

    Er…..it’s another example of Ken’s duplicity. He said he didn’t need them, when plainly he does.

    Chuckus Yamoney says:

    Dear Annoyingmouse

    Who gave these fuckers a free rein to enter the country in the first place.

    Ed Balls at the treasury told Gordon who told Tony that GDP can only expand by either efficiency or population increase. Seeing as industry was already squeaking with efficiency, the only way to increase GDP was to expand the population with an undisclosed open door policy.

    And now we get BellEndInNelli’s sociopathic blog bitch, Anonymous saying it is Cameron’s fault
