Labours Worst Day

The week started with a row brewing over comments by one MP Naz Shah as they were thought to be Anti-Semitic. She was the PPS of the shadow chancellor John Mcdonnell and her comments mentioned the transportation of Jews. The calls went out for her to have the whip removed but this never happened until yesterday [Wednesday 27-Jun-2016].

This morning on his way into Millbank Ken Livingstone is confronted by John Mann and accused of being a "Nazi apologist" and advised about his history being misinformed. Livingstone then starts a round of interviews starting with the BBC News, the Daily Politics and the World at One repeating the same stance on each one that over 47 years he has never heard a member of the Labour Party make Anti-Semitic remarks and also that Naz Shah was not an Anti-Semitic.

The candidate for London Mayor Sadiq Khan said "Ken Livingstone's comments are appalling and inexcusable. There must be no place for this in our party"

Currently Labour MPs are queuing up to demand Ken Livingstone's removal in full public view and the day isn't even over yet.
