Red Ken Exposes Labour Hypocrisy

However much we suspect the integrity and word of politicians, rarely is there such a simple acid test of right and wrong. Labour’s selection for a candidate for Mayor of Tower Hamlets has been an utter mess resulting with many supporting the lefty independent Lutfur Rahman, who was deselected after his extremist links were exposed. These rogues included Labour’s candidate for the Mayor of London.

The Staggers reports that so far eight people have already been expelled from Labour for campaigning against the official candidate and Harman said:

“There is nobody else that is a Labour candidate for Tower Hamlets… if they are supporting somebody else, then they are opposing the Labour Party and you cannot be against a party and in it”

So will Labour live up to their famed hypocrisy and let this one go quietly? Are some animals more equal than others?

UPDATE : Smarkets have opened the betting on Tower Hamlets.
