Sky Debate Question for Tonight:
Did An Accountant Really Sign Off Ken’s Tax Declaration?

Ken said last month: “No journalist has contacted my accountant to ask anything about my tax arrangements. I’d be quite happy for them to do so.” So we called his accountant and he wasn’t happy to speak to us at all…

We called Ken’s accountant Peter Auguste to ask him why if he had signed off Ken’s released tax declaration as Team Ken claims, he had not put his name to the document? He refused to confirm he had in fact signed off the declaration. A week after Ken released his figures they then changed on his website. We think Ken was lying and that the figures were not in fact signed off by his accountant, who would not have got them wrong when by law they were signed off and sworn to be true in his annual returns to HMRC.

All of sudden Ken’s claimed income had risen from £164,055 to £205,800 and his tax paid from £113,861 to £131,606. Mysterious.

This might have something to do with the fact that – as he’s admitted to the Standard – he “forgot” to include in his declaration a “resettlement grant” he got from the GLA when he lost the mayoralty. But that resettlement grant was £71,000 – so even Ken’s new figures don’t seem to add up. So a simple question for Ken tonight. Were his released figures really produced by his accountant or by his campaign?

His accountant has refused to confirm to us he signed them off. There is no signature or letterhead on the released figures and the document properties appears to show that it was produced by Mark Watts. Watts is the name of Ken Livingstone’s former advisor whilst Mayor who joined his Parliamentary staff in 1999 and now works as a “Climate Change advisor”. Not an accountant…

            I hear that George Galloway is canvassing in East London for the Beacon of Islam, our Ken.

            Sweet George of Islam is calling for the House of Commons bars to be abolished on the pretext that “no one has a bar at work.” Cruise liners? Hotels? Gyms? Swimming pools? Pubs? Office blocks? Staff restaurants?

            Given the Milk Licker’s enthusiasm for alcohol free Islam it’s not surprising but I wonder how his previous record as an MP squares with the Commons being a “work place?” Any thoughts or facts on this?

They have a 5 point plan to fix the economy”. I smiled. Despite his youth, he possessed more wisdom than most people twice his age.

    As the police continued to beat the kettled students, I turned to the schoolboy again, who regarded me with a serious expression. “Do your parents know you’re out here?” I asked tentatively, careful not to sound patronising. He broke into a grin. “Course not.” Stubbing out the cigarette, he said “But I know they’ll be proud of me when we win this fight”. I was surprised by his optimism. “You think we’ll win?” He leapt off the ledge with a sudden bolt of energy. “Course. This is my generation’s fight. And we’ll win it”. As he went to rejoin his school friends, I felt for the first time a genuine sense of hope for the future. Oh we’ll win all right. You can bet on it.

    After 11 years of funding this undesriable Cleric why don’t you just put him on a plane?

    Suggestion: Dump Europe (remember the Cast Iron Guarantee?), abide by OUR Laws and kick the tosser out back to Jordan.

    If you like I’ll fly the aircraft.

    For 8 years they did nothing to get rid of Qatada. Now they attack Teresa May for trying to get him deported.
    Just what is it with spiteful labour, when they would sooner side with a terrorist.
    So now labour condone racism, tax avoidance, terrorism and rendition. Labour are the party of evil.
    Blair sent people to their deaths.

        I laughed at Mr Galloways accusation at communist come Blair Lacky on Arronovitch , never thought that one would get an airing , Yvette got one or two interesting lines in , although think Theresa May line stinks even though on plenty of todays papers , face of it does look like unfortuante error , but clearly primed , hope Ken sees how ridiculous procedure is , after EU love all this time .

        Skys mayoral debate was well managed by skys Anna , but a bit hard going once hour was done . TFL debt didnt get much airing , despite Kens claims he knew what he was doing with transport , Union question was about as comedic as you could wish for , Lib dem nor Ken said obvious thing that considering situation strike threat is just plain wrong .

        Portillio cant bring himself to Boris , the bias of london politics has sometimes puzzled me , they get one of the most intellgent long term mayors for a generation , whose approach to council tax is generating wealth , who brings some flair and tours every borugh wether election or not , a slightly eccentric style sometimes missing clarity , but you know he knows his city its institutions and meanings right down to street markets and he represents them , to a better working ideal . If you want Kens never ending expense ,debt and global socialist confernce hub again , or the fact that Mr Paddick complains about met racisim despite being senior in that very same force retiring on 32 yrs service . I mean I know it doesnt seem that way in these election debates , but Boris can deliver best long term health for municipal workings for a generation , I mean if he screws up does anyone honestly think either of the others could have done it better ?? He just has to confound those that try and frame him as too intellectual and not forget how bad it was before he took office , with its spin departments and non jobs .

      I was doing it on behalf of my hero Ken. He was utterly corrupt and clapped out, but he was on my side so it was OK.

    This is the meaning of the word, “VETO”

    A veto, Latin for “I forbid”, is the power of an officer of the state to unilaterally stop an official action, especially enactment of a piece of legislation.

    A veto only gives power to stop changes, not to adopt them. The veto therefore conveys to its holder an ability to protect the STATUS QUO.
