Dan Hodges, a Labour supporter, blogging about Ken Livingston: Maybe I am being indulgent. Perhaps we all are, those of us who are finally turning round and saying “sorry Ken, enough is enough.”
But on balance I don’t think so. I think the truly indulgent people are those who cry at their own campaign videos. Who take to the streets against Labour candidates when it suits them, and then demand loyalty from others when it doesn’t. Who use a political party as a vehicle for their own political ambitions, then abandon it when they realise it isn’t going to get them where they want to go.
Ken Livingstone has been indulged and indulged and indulged. Next month the indulgence will finally stop. The voters of London will see to that. Ouch.
