Labour Left is Ashamed of Ken

The self-appointed moral arbiter of the left, Mehdi Hasan, has broken cover in the Staggers and ruined Ken’s morning:

The big problem for Livingstone is that he has been a vocal supporter of UK Uncut, which campaigns against not just (illegal) tax evasion but also (legal) tax avoidance – by Vodafone, Topshop and other big companies. “These rich bastards just don’t get it,” Livingstone wrote in 2009. “No one should be allowed to vote in a British election, let alone sit in our parliament, unless they are paying their full share of tax.” The former London mayor called for everyone to “pay tax at the same rate on their earnings and all other income”.

The word “hypocrite” is being whispered – and not just by the usual suspects on the right. 

The simple truth is this: you cannot run as the populist, banker-bashing candidate, the one who backs higher taxes on “rich bastards”, if you’re quietly channelling hundreds of thousands of pounds of your own earnings into a company jointly owned with your wife. You just can’t.

Hasan recommends that Ken gets his chequebook out and pops down to the HMRC with a camera crew. What are you afraid of Ken?
