Sadiq Khan thought it was all very funny when he tweeted a letter he had received from Neil Kinnock joking that Eric Pickles might not survive running the London marathon and that his death would hand Labour “a helpful by-election”:
Now silly Sadiq is very sorry:
Profuse apologies to @EricPickles – I have spoken to him to apologise & am sorry. Inappropriate tweet.

Hardly behaviour becoming of a man who keeps accusing the Tories of being the nasty party…
Happy to accept @SadiqKhan apology for an inappropriate tweet. So far as I am concerned the matter is closed
