In a fine echo of Gerry Adams's infamous and rather sinister comment "they haven't gone away you know", it would appear that Ken Livingstone is attempting to inflict himself on the Brits once again.

Red Ken has had a rather chequered political career to say the least and it says a lot about how rudderless the English Labour party is that, having expelled him from their ranks a few years back, they have now selected him to be their candidate for Mayor of London at the next election.

The current incumbent, Tory toff Boris Johnson, is said to be delighted with the choice, knowing how much Londoners hate Livingstone after his last disastrous tenure.
