If anyone has ever doubted that the BBC has a political bias to the left then all they have to do every Sunday morning is to tune into to the hideous 'Andrew Marr Show' which for years now has paraded a gaggle of discredited politicians (most of them from what is called the Labour party) to air their jaundiced views publically.
Today it is the turn of the nauseous Ken Livingstone to try and explain why he has apparently not been paying his taxes. Of course it is a smear campaign, his accountant is to blame, his wife beavers away in the attic supporting him and at any rate Boris Johnson (that rich bastard) also cheats on his taxes. For some unaccountable reason what is left of the Labour party cannot find anyone else to oppose Boris Johnson for the position of Lord Mayor of London.
Ken Livingstone has made a living from using words. The mainstream media has often accused him of dodgy practice and even racism but like a bad penny he keeps turning up spouting his mediaeval politics generally based on envy and class related nonsense.
If he is the best that the left can do then they really are struggling for credibility. However if the position of Lord Mayor of London is a straight fight between Red Ken and Bumbling Boris then why would anyone even want to vote?
