Yesterday Ken Livingstone, a prominent UK politician, socialist and key ally of Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, was suspended for allegedly antisemitic comments. His suspension brings the phony ‘antisemitism’ smear campaign being waged against the elected leadership of the Labour Party to within an inch of Corbyn himself.
Over the past 36 hours Livingstone has been accused of being a ‘Nazi apologist’, a ‘disgusting racist’ and a historical revisionist – and that’s just from one of his party colleagues.
I’ve written a short piece showing that the allegations against Livingstone are baseless and shameless in equal measure. You can read it in full here.
