London Mayor Ken Livingston has done it again, fresh from being censured and almost banned for making anti-Semitic and offensive comments to a Jewish reporter. This time he has told two Jewish Iranian developers to "go back where they came from."
Now on top of this Livingston has branded London Assembly member Brian Coleman "Dr. Goebbles." I say he is an anti-Semitic fool because firstly he only seems to make these kind of remarks to Jews and secondly he keeps on saying and doing the same things that got him into trouble last time.
On Tuesday, Livingstone said of the Reuben brothers, Jewish members of the syndicate building the 4 billion pound Olympic City in East London for the 2012 Olympic Games, "perhaps if they're not happy they can always go back [to their own country] and see if they can do better under the ayatollahs."
Asked by reporters to clarify his remarks, he said, "If they're not happy here, they can go back to Iran and try their luck with the ayatollahs, if they don't like the planning regime or my approach."
On Wednesday Livingston did not apologise, saying ""I would offer a complete apology to the people ofIran to the suggestion that they may be linked in any way to the Reuben brothers. I wasn't meaning to be offensive to the people of Iran."
I have to ask the question, why is Livingston only making these sort of comments to Jews? Would he have the nerve to say to a British Pakistani or African to go back to where they came from?
I doubt it as he knows that would be the quickest way to a removal from his position. It should not be any different for a Jew. Livingston has to go now!
