Boris Johnson Dirty Tricks Against Ken Livingstone

Boris Gets It Wrong, Wrong, Wrong

Boris must be worried about Ken.  In a snide, nasty and Soviet-style move, Boris’ team has enlisted a herd of tame bloggers to campaign against Ken’s assignment with Press TV.

Now of course, Press TV has very dodgy antecedents.  It’s backed by the Iranian government and very probably subject to a degree of control by Allahshandjob and his theocratic Nazis.  Inevitably the Zionists are up in arms, manipulating, bullying, bribing and coercing their friends into a disgraceful smear campaign against Ken.  It’s really a battle of one Nazi ideology against another.  I’m very surprised and deeply disappointed to see Boris getting involved.

It’s worth reading Press TV’s perspective on the issue in “Britain trying to halt Press TV”.’

The Mayor Of London’s office flatly refused to comment on this story.  In fact they couldn’t put the phone down on me quickly enough.  I can tell you though, with absolute certainty, that specific instructions went out from Boris’ office to round up his sheeple and get them all writing the same story – particularly to link the phrase “holocaust deniers” to Ken’s name as often as possible.

Any reasonable person condemns both the Iranian and Zionist regimes.  They are both a force for evil and a threat to world peace.  We should be encouraging their involvment in the media though, in the ebb and flow of news and information.  That is the way towards a more honest, inclusive and peaceful world.  The British media is often biased but we would be outraged if any part of it was subject to such a campaign of smear, innuendo and attempted gagging.  This is a repressive, anti-democratic campaign.  Boris should stop it immediately.  It’s a mistake.

Journalists work for Fox News all the time and there’s no more despicable news organisation.  Left and right wingers write for the Daily Mail every day, despite its legendary bias, misinformation and scandalmongering.  Andrew Gilligan has worked for Press TV.  Why shouldn’t Ken?

Probably the worst mistake I’ve ever seen Boris make.  This sort of behaviour is beneath him and entirely unnecessary.
