My Proudest And Least Proud Moments

My second proudest moment in politics was when the London Labour Party's electoral college blocked Ken Livingstone from standing as Labour Party Candidate in 2000 and picked Frank Dobson instead. My least proud moment, as regular readers will know, was when Linda and I got caught by the BBC Panorama team passing the Labour Party membership list to the Dobbo camp in order to give him an unfair advantage against Independent candidate Red Ken and his purple bandwagon. So you can imagine how sick I'm feeling after spending most of my recent spare time canvassing for he man. Why am I doing this? Because, as I explained the other day, Ken may be an unaccountable, fraudulent, dictatorial, ineffective, wheeler-dealing, uncontrollable, criminal, PR-obsessed, Trotskyite, conspiratorial, pro-fanatical, anti-Israeli, revolutionary, anti-semitic, profligate, imperial alcoholic... but these days he's the Labour Party's unaccountable, fraudulent, dictatorial, ineffective, wheeler-dealing, uncontrollable, criminal, PR-obsessed, Trotskyite, conspiratorial, pro-fanatical, anti-Israeli, revolutionary, anti-semitic, profligate, imperial alcoholic. And that makes all the difference. If he was a Tory or a LibDem, I wouldn't touch him with a 50ft barge pole. I've just found some video clips on YouTube that show something of Ken's policies. I'll leave it to you to work out how closely aligned his views are to my own.


Iraq - the biggest demo in 2000 years

Welcoming Hugo Chavez to London

I'm backing Jon Cruddas for Deputy Leader

Trident - a total waste of £billions

Defend Iran against American aggression

You sanctimonious hypocrites - Lee Jasper is innocent

I particularly like this viagra video clip. It shows that in New Labour we aren't quite as daft as we frequently look.


Ken Livingstone was never my first choice for Mayor of London.
I used to be my first choice for Mayor of London.
But I've completely fallen for Ken's crafty plan to undermine the LibDem leadership and get re-elected.
Just because I'm blonde and blue-eyed, it doesn't make me stupid!

Talk about rhyme and metre - doesn't sound like the Greens are too hot at it!

"Jon Cruddas has led the fight against the BNP in the East End of London" - does this man not know the East End ends at the Lea?
