Who does this prick think he is? I'll admit, I was quite happy to see him take out Steven Norris, Archer and Dobson to get into the mayor's seat in the first place, but the gag isn't funny anymore. What has Ken Livingstone done for us lately? Gouged drivers for five quid a pop to "relieve congestion" in London, apparently to funnel back into public transport - and yet fares STILL go up year on year and I have been unable to get the train from my local for the past 7 weekends due to 'engineering work' on a track that's fine the rest of the week. And he's paying some American twat a million quid a week to sit on his arse and do nothing after he was fired for trying to do his job.
Not content with this, first the congestion charge rises, then the zone it applies to spreads like some biblical plague into west London - WHEN HE SAID NEITHER OF THESE THINGS WOULD HAPPEN.
But I should think the most galling aspect of Livingstone's tenure as mayor has been his cuddling up to a parade of personalities that could be charitably described as odious. Now I don't begrudge Ken having cosy dialogues with Islamic fundamentalists and dubious leftist south American heads of state, but when he's on the clock as it were, that's where I draw the line. And since when did we need cheap fucking oil from Venezuela? What I need is the £250 a year extra I'm paying for trains and buses back. I'll buy my own god damn oil.
Red Ken has got to go.
