Labour Openly Uneasy About Deceitful Ken”Your relentless cynicism is matched only by your hypocrisy”

Labour’s rapid rebuttal re-education squad are having kittens with the latest lefty figure to tell the truth about Ken Livingstone. This morning we had the Political Editor of the New Statesman call Ken  a hypocrite, and now Jonathan Roberts, a Labour Parliamentary candidate, sums up on Labour Uncut what any Labour member with a spine must be thinking:

“Your supporters will say I’m disloyal to the Labour Party, but don’t seem to mind you campaigning against our candidate in Tower Hamlets.Your supporters cheered you when you called tax avoiders “rich bastards”, but they don’t seem to mind the £50,000 you have allegedly avoided yourself. Your supporters criticise Boris Johnson as a “part time Mayor” for churning out a weekly article for the Telegraph, but they don’t seem to mind that you were an MP and a writer for the Independent during substantial parts of your own Mayoral tenure.

Your relentless cynicism and negativity is matched only by your hypocrisy. And I mind all three.

It bothers me that people think you are the last bastion of Labourness. It bothers me that you think you are the last bastion of Labourness. It bothers me that because I am a proud member of this party, I am expected to give up countless hours of my life to fight through the rain and cold to campaign for a man who has made so many anti-west comments that Iranian state television gave him his own TV show.”

The whole letter is well worth a read. If Ken’s own activist base is running for the hills, it’s going to be big ask for floating voters to return a hypocrite…
