Ken Livingstone has been on LBC to dismiss the Oxford Labour anti-Semitism row, claiming that in all his decades on the Labour left he “never heard any anti-Jewish sentiment”, and that he can’t be anti-Semitic because he’s had two Jewish girlfriends. Errr…

Quote of the Day

“As you said last week, Mr Speaker, we have a responsibility to safeguard the rights of this House and as Leader of the House I seek to do exactly that, treating all members of parliament with courtesy and respect. I hope and expect all Honourable and Right Honourable members to do likewise.”
