Ken Livingstone On Multiculturalism in London

On the Today programme at 8.35 this morning, Ken says that multiculturalism's working.

"Religiously-motivated attacks have declined ...."

I missed him saying " ... although admittedly one of them was rather large".

Ken Livingstone doesn't count Jews..........he has a thing about them being Unpersons

verityHe's one himself. His grandmother was Jewish, which makes him Jewish.

At the risk of upholding Godwin's Law, wasn't Heydrich a Jew (under the definition applied to German Jews by the Nazis)? Apparently all records of Heydrich's ancestry were mysteriously destroyed or went missing in the early 30s. My point? Even if Livingstone is techically a Jew, he's more interested in power and the electoral arithmetic in London is in favour of Islam. Also, just an impression gained from listening to and reading him, going along with the electoral arithmetic seems to accord (luckily for him) with what he would have freely chosen as his political (and racial) agenda anyway.

umbongo - oh, certainly! No argument from me. It's just interesting that he is in denial of what he is. That makes him weak and vulnerable.

"That makes him weak and vulnerable". Agreed but, injecting some psychobabble, it makes him even more determined (psychologically) to deny what he is: hence his love of those who justify the suicide bombing of "his" people.

I believe the phrase that applies is 'Apart from that, how was the pley, Mrs Lincoln ?'

I believe not.
