Farage Says “Stop Ayatollah Livingstone”

With Jenny Jones from the Greens is telling her supporters to back Ken with their second preferences and now this morning Nigel Farage has signalled similar UKIP support for Boris. Unlike with the Greens, the promise of a job wasn’t needed first…

UPDATE: UKIP send over a full statement from Farage:

“Ken Livingstone is dangerous and does not represent the aspirations of Old Labour at all. His comments on Islam, calling for London to be a ‘beacon for Islam’ and to spend the next four years ensuring Londoners know the teachings of Mohammed’ are divisive, opportunistic and totally unacceptable. He has clearly been learning politics from George Galloway and is pandering dangerously to one religious group. He is standing to be the Mayor for the whole of London and particularly with the Olympics and Diamond Jubilee celebrations, should be someone all Londoners can respect and be proud of. Whilst we have deep reservations about some of Boris’s views, especially his support for amnesties for illegal immigrants, we now recommend that Londoners give him their second preference vote. Ken Livingstone – Ayatollah Livingston – would be a disaster for London.”

Ouch!
