Livingstone found guilty


Recommended Posts

From PA:


London Mayor Ken Livingstone was today found guilty of bringing his office into disrepute by comparing a Jewish reporter to a Nazi concentration camp guard.

The three-man Adjudication Panel for England unanimously ruled that Mr Livingstone had been "unnecessarily insensitive and offensive" to Evening Standard reporter Oliver Finegold in February last year.

David Laverick, chairman of the disciplinary panel sitting in central London, said: "His treatment of the journalist was unnecessarily insensitive and offensive.

"He persisted with a line of comment likening the journalist's job to a concentration camp guard despite being told that the journalist was Jewish and found it offensive to be asked if he was a German war criminal."

Mr Livingstone was not at today's hearing.

The panel has still to decide Mr Livingstone's punishment, which could include being barred from office, suspension, censure or being made to apologise or to undergo training for breaching the Greater London Authority's code of conduct.

i f***ing LOATHE the standard. it's an even more smug and up its own hole version of the daily mail.


Me too, but I have to say I loathe Livingstone even more.


This is just like that Hamiltons v Fayed libel case. I can't decide who I want to lose more.
