Better Off With Ken

This morning I joined Ken Livingstone, Ed Miliband, and my Labour colleagues from the London Assembly in Croydon to launch the Better Off With Ken campaign – and there is no doubt Londoners will be better off if we elect Ken Livingstone mayor on 3 May. A dossier published today reveals  the financial benefits to Londoners of Ken Livingstone’s six point plan with Boris Johnson’s nine campaign points: from the £1,000 on average over four years saved by the Fare Deal fare cuts to the £480 average household savings on lower energy bills, Ken’s plan will ease the squeeze whilst helping people into work, providing more and better quality affordable housing, and moving London to the forefront of the green economy.

    Jonathan Freedland says he’s backed Ken Livingstone for mayor before, but this time he just can’t do it.

    A lot of people think Ken is a racist.

    There’s also Ken’s remark about the Conservatives riddled with homosexuals which lead to accusations that he is homophobic too. Nicky,what do you think about all these things?

    Liza, thank you for your comment.

    See what Ken said just a few moments ago in a Guardian Q&A http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/blog/2012/mar/26/ken-livingstone-live-q-a-london-mayor-live-blog:

    Question:
    Are all Londoners equal? If so, what is your response to the concern amongst the Jewish community arising from your attitude towards them?

    Livingstone responded:
    I will be mayor for the whole city, as I was before. In each year I was mayor, antisemitic attacks declined and even during Israel’s invasions of the Lebanon when antisemitic attacks soared in the rest of the UK and Europe, they did not rise in London. This was because all London’s different communities live side by side peacefully in this city, unlike the situation in much of the rest of the world.
    I am going to work with the London Jewish Forum as I did before and I am proud to be fighting alongside Jewish Labour members to make London a fairer city.
