From the Labour Party...again

Jumped before being pushed...

Quote:


Ken Livingstone has said he is resigning from the Labour Party.

The ex-London mayor has been suspended since 2016 in a row over allegations of anti-Semitism following comments he made about Hitler and Zionism.

Mr Livingstone told the BBC he was quitting after his lawyers advised him if he lost his case and was expelled, it would take at least two years before any legal challenge was resolved.

Jeremy Corbyn said it was a sad moment but it was the "right thing to do".

Mr Livingstone, an ally of party leader Jeremy Corbyn, has always maintained that comments he made about the Nazi leader supporting a Jewish homeland when he first came to power in the early 1930 were historically accurate.

Last week, shadow attorney general Shami Chakrabarti called for Mr Livingstone's expulsion - signalling to some that the party leadership had now turned against him.

He was awaiting a fresh disciplinary process due to start this week.

Mr Livingstone was expelled from Labour in 2000 after challenging the party's official candidate in the mayoral contest but returned to the fold later.

I see all the momentum nutters are going onto overdrive claiming it's the friends if Israel behind this, SMEARING anyone who criticised Israel. Kinda ignoring Livingstone's history of anti-semitism including unprompted nazi comments towards Jewish journalists

The only way it could have gone.
Labour show how strong they are against anti-Semitic remarks, Ms I'll-do-anything-for-a-peerage Chacrobatty gets to publicly rue that the party didn't do what she asked....even though they still haven't done what she asked now that she's in charge....and Ken gets the chance to be invited back in....again....at a later date.

As Ken says, he'll do anything to help the comrade leader and the momentum thugs.

He took his time over that decision. He never was the fascist.
