Ken Still Dodging Tax Questions
Is He Going to Hide Until May?

Another morning with Ken keeping his head down. He’s still dodging the cameras and has been relegated to mere tweeting. Meanwhile the Not Ken Again lot have put out this video:

They’re also looking to open source their attack ads Think you can do better? The longer Ken keeps his head down, the more obvious it becomes that he has something to hide. It’s deeply ironic that it was his campaign that were deploying a giant chicken suit last month…

      Red Channel spokesman says:

      An Official Statement from the State Broadcaster, the Red Channel Commissar:

      ” The Peoples Mayor is the only Mayor you will be allowed to vote for. Our offices in Salford & Bethnal Green & Bow are populated with loyal activists in their tens of millions who exhort you the proletariat to rise up and use your twenty votes each. We are completely unbiased and follow our Charter and therefore insist your 50 votes go to our Dear Leader Kenneth Livingstone, a man for and of the people. Do not tax yourselves further and rid the tented capital of that running dog, paper tiger subversive known as Boris Pecker.

      Up with Vladimir Puke-in. Long live the Peoples Republic of Londonistan”!

            Abu Qatada is an effnic, you see, a wonderful member of our multicultural society, long may they continue to arrive in this country in their millions.

            Whereas Tappin is a bastard white English heterosexual bastard.

            And he probably supports UKIP. Almost certainly, in fact.

            Why is he such a threat to national security? Start asking questions about how he got here! Why is he still here and Why and who did he help to procure young stupid men who do not understand who really profits from Bombs going off around the world. That protection rackateering racket still a great earner.
            As for Tappin UK is just an extended State of the USA and they want him, ask yourself why they dont want the real terrorist.

New Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond has big ambitions in his first meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu today:

“I came to bring this conflict to an end.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
