Ken Promising Full Silveta Accounts

Ken Livingstone has a tendency to shoot his mouth off and says things which are inadvisable, like criticising politicians for cosying up to News International when he himself is no stranger to Wapping:

Incidentally when Guido tweeted this picture yesterday twitter-idiots claimed it was a fake. It is absolutely genuine.

At the London Jewish Forum last night under pressure about his tax affairs Ken promised again that the certified Silveta accounts would be published online “shortly”. No sign of them yet. Only 20 days since he first promised he would..

      If that picture really is genuine it’s probably the only thing about Ken that is

        The ES article makes no mention of Silveta Accounts, just that he’s gonna get his current ones signed off by an accountant… wonder how much he’s gonna pay to get them to do that!

          I would guess about as much as they would have made in the remainder of their professional career plus some for the costs of defending being struck off.

        It should be impossible for public opinion of politicians to sink lower than it was during the expenses scandal


        given the disgracefully childish behaviour on all sides at PMQs today, those outside the Westminster think MP’s are all self absorbed fucking idiots.

        The country is going down the tubes and all we see is jeers, catcalls and playground posturing.

        FFS grow up

        Bradford got George, France is about to get Hollande and London may get Ken.

        Shows the value of form over substance and how you have to keep repeating the lie.

      The London Sharia Beacon says:

      As the future Mayor, my first task will be the open up an Envoy system between great cities like Tehran and Caracas.

      I will arrange a State Visit within hours of my appointment by the postal voters of Tower Hamlets from Mahmoud Admandinejad. London will be Judenrein and declared a US Free Zone.

          Ain't It the Truth says:

          London will twin with Gaza City, recognise all terrorist organisations, invite the Iranian Revolutionary Guard to run checks on all enemies of the people and ask former IRA operatives to run Scotland Yard.

      What happens to these ministerial advisors (and their mendacious minister bosses) once they are booted out? Are Ms Moore and the slippery Byers still skulking around Westminster?

        Angela Merkel ardent card carrying communist until 1989 says:

        Hollande must have read it, unlike Sarkozy and realised the deal is basically legalised theft. Don’t expect Merkel to be pleased about this, the scam was going to be run by German banks and bankers.

      Streuth, let’s hope that never happens. We’re getting the pommie pooftas by the planeload as it is! Fuck off and take your stupid “football” and your gay beer with you.


      • 23
        yeah, right.... says:

        Gay beer? From the nation who gave us Fosters and XXXX?

        I think we could take that from the Belgians, but Aussies?

          What's on? says:

          If it means that you don’t wake up stinking of goats piss with a massive head-ache and shitting concrete – then yes I suppose Pommie beer is gay.

        Oh yes , you despise pommies and yet you have a Welsh PM. Care to explain your philosophy. Even we had something better than Kinnochio.

    Marmite says:

    Ken is a lying Barsteward, and IF he does publish his Silveta accounts, they’ll probably be signed off by Mickey Mouse.
    The man has no shame and no integrity.


  4. 4

    Does it matter if he publishes his full accounts? He could spit in a baby’s face and the Labour sheep will still vote for him.


    • 12
      Sheep says:

      He could shit in a babies face and I’d still vote for him, bah…

    Ken may have trouble finding an accountant to touch his company accounts, after all the nasteez that have come out of the woodwork already.

    Ken’s a pretty straight kinda guy, just like me. Maybe a little nutty sometimes but hey, who are we to judge? Londoners should elect him.

      TB, the letters “r” and “j” are missing from your penultimate word. Inclusion of “l”is not needed. Your secretary needs to excercise more care.

    Voing for Ken is like turkeys voting for a ha-lal Christmas.

    Ken is absolutely awful in every possible way. Fair play though, Boris has also become a politically correct idiot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vQ3_rU8dZk

      Erm? says:

      So why do UKIP suggest giving Boris 2nd pref vote?


      • 25

        Because they are no better, but with less experience – could go either way really. Either a complete f.uck up if they ever get real power, or a complete balls up – one or the other, take your pick.

        UKIP – Monster Raving, with a budget.

          I Remember You Hoo says:

          Oddly UKIP policies look rather good and far better than anything offered by either the socialist Coalition or the marxist Labour “opposition”.

          I am rather keen on strict border controls and the ability to deport trouble makers back to their country / shithole of origin. Plus paying £50,000,000 a day to be in a club that continually pisses on you and orders you around without you having any say in the matter, is not my cup of tea. Though I suspect, it is yours.

      That’s Berlin time as in Calais time, is it?

        Berlin stayed in the same time zone throughout the 20th century. Calais moved to Berlin time at some point in the period 1939-1945 and, according to reliable accounts, remains there to this day.

    Given that the EU can’t get anybody to sign their accounts off after, what is it?, 10 years, 20 days is a mere bagatelle.

      Rather more than 10 years, try 17, 18 this year.

      Geoff, England (not Britain or 'United' KIngdom) says:

      It’s more like 15-18 years since the EU’s accounts were last signed off. If any private business had tried to get away with that, its owners, directors and other top executives would have been jailed long ago and banned from holding such office again.

    Beeboid telling us that Cameron went considerably out of his way en route to a Turkish holiday to meet then devil Murdoch off Santorini, Greece.

    Santorini is on the way there. Not like the trip, unreported by the Beeboid, that Bliar made to meet him in Oz.

    Also it seems Salmond is ok – only the occasional meeting (like Cameron)

    Lord Carrington's Binoculars says:

    Remember the ‘cheap oil from Venezuela’?

    Turns out that was a lie (often repeated) as well.

    Rather than shipping oil to his own refinery, turns out that Leninspart had signed a deal that saw the Venezuelan state oil company paying 20 percent of TFL’s diesel fuel bill in sterling.

    Think about that: Lenin allowed a human-rights abusing dictatorship to buy diesel for London buses.

    Vote Boris, or we’ll be in for more the same Stalinist madness.

    That picture of Ken Livingstone is an obvious fake. I know this fact to be true because the Party tells me it is true. Thus it is my duty to make sure this picture never took place– it “unhappened,” as we say in Newsp*e*ak. And two and two make five.
