Ken Livingstone was today accused of showing “a lack of judgment” after it emerged he has been paid thousands of pounds to front a programme on Iranian state television.WELL, IT SEEMS THINGS WERE WORSE THAN ANYONE KNEW:
He has presented seven shows on the English-language Press TV channel, three of which have been broadcast since he became Labour's London mayoral candidate in September.
The government-funded international news network was launched by Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2007 and is run by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting.
The broadcaster was investigated last year by Ofcom after interviewing a jailed Newsweek journalist who was allegedly under extreme duress at the time in an interrogation room.
Iran may be one of the last pariah states in the Middle East, but it has proved lucrative for Ken Livingstone:
Mandrake learns that Labour’s candidate to be the next mayor of London is sitting on a £284,582 fortune which he accumulated from sources including the Iran-funded Press TV.
The latest accounts for Red Ken’s company, Silveta Limited, disclose that his “cash at bank and in hand” increased to £319,083 last year, and was then swelledby a further £27,615 from debtors. He was able to leave £284,582 in funds for the two shareholders: he and his wife, Emma Beal.
LEFTISTS, LIKE THIS PIECE OF CRAP RED KEN, HAVE NO PROBLEM ALLYING THEMSELVES WITH THE WORST OF THE WORST; IN FACT, THEY SEE THE WEST'S ENEMIES AS ALLIES.
THEY DON'T DESERVE A PLACE ON THE AIRWAVES OR THE BALLOT.
THEY SHOULD BE JAILED AS TRAITORS TO THEIR NATIONS AND OUR CIVILIZATION.
