Ken Livingstone quotes

Mar 31 2017 - North Korea

The obvious thing would be a judicial review because that would be heard in public and that would be the best way of clearing the air of these lies and smears. This isn't North Korea, we are supposed to be an open democracy.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Israel

Let's remember when Hitler won his election in 1932 – his policy then was that Jews should be moved to Israel. He was supporting Zionism. This before he went mad and ended up killing 6 million Jews.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Palestine

I did not say or suggest that Hitler was a Zionist. I did not make any equation of Hitler and Zionism. I neither criticised the transfer agreement or the section of Zionism that participated in the agreement.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Palestine

[Hitler] didn't just sign the deal. The SS set up training camps so that German Jews who were going to go there could be trained to cope with a very different sort of country when they got there [Palestine]. So you had right up until the start of the second world war real collaboration. It's completely unfair. We have a tradition of law and that is open. There's absolutely no justification for something like this being done in private.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Human Rights

I am being attacked by the right wing of the Labour party because I support Palestinian human rights and strongly back our leader, Jeremy Corbyn. There is no real evidence against me, so hopefully the Labour panel will dismiss the charge against me. Only a biased and rigged jury could find against me.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Palestine

He didn't just sign the deal. The SS set up training camps so that German Jews who were going to go there could be trained to cope with a very different sort of country when they got there. When the Zionist movement asked would the Nazi government stop a Jewish rabbi doing their sermons in Yiddish and make them do it in Hebrew, he agreed to that.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Palestine

It's really coming down to claiming I brought the party into disrepute by defending Naz Shah. As she's been readmitted to the party that does seem a bit excessive to try and expel me for supporting her.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Israel

There's been a very well-orchestrated campaign by the Israel lobby to smear anybody who criticises Israeli policy as anti-Semitic. I had to put up with 35 years of this. It's completely over the top but it's not anti-Semitic. Let's remember when Hitler won his election in 1932, his policy was that Jews should be moved to Israel. He was supporting Zionism - this is before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Labour Party

The simple fact is they are consciously undermining Jeremy and damaging the Labour party.feedback

Mar 22 2017

I'm particularly talking about Chuka Umunna, Wes Streeting – basically it's the same group of MPs who were screaming that I'd said Hitler was a Zionist and I was antisemitic. The moment that issue went on hold, they were then blaming Jeremy for Britain voting to leave. Just endless criticism. It's only about a dozen of them. I'm basically retired. I'm not seeking office. I haven't asked Jeremy or didn't ask Ed Miliband to send me to the House of Lords or anything like that. I'm a house husband, but I'm not having my political career defined at the end that I'm antisemitic.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Labour Party

I'm afraid we'll have to be off to a judicial review in the courts and in the court the issue will be what was actually said and what is the truth, and the Labour party has got no chance of winning a judicial review.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Labour Party

It's the legacy of Tony Blair, because it used to be the case that a party could select whoever it wanted as an MP. Tony Blair bought in the rule changes, you had to choose from approve lists. We have got to get a party that's democratic again, [where] any local Labour party can select the candidate they want for parliament and anyone can stand for the leadership when we have a leadership election. This is more like something out of a dictatorship, not a democracy.feedback

Mar 21 2017

I just find it bizarre because what Momentum wants to do is go back to the rules the Labour party had for 90 years when there's a leadership election, someone from the left can stand. We never had this nonsense that you have to get 15% of Labour MPs to nominate you. Don't try and block Momentum wanting to go back to the rules we had, that allow a leadership election to be open.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Labour Party

It would be ridiculous to keep a rule that means if Jeremy Corbyn was run over by a bus tomorrow we wouldn't be able to have a leftwing candidate stand. They wouldn't get the 15% of MPs. In America, anyone can run for president, they don't have to get the 15% of members of Congress.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Labour Party

Jeremy Corbyn doesn't give in to this sort of pressure, he's been consistent and however much the press ramp it up, or he's stabbed in the back by Labour MPs, he's not going to change what he believes or the direction he's taking. We now have to focus on getting a good economic strategy out there that can win the next general election.feedback

Jan 08 2013

Literally without the Tube London could not have grown to the size it is. Two hundred years ago there were only about one million people in London and you went to eight million. But you had to have a really high intense underground railway in order to be able to do that, that's why all the world's cities, like Beijing, Shanghai, Delhi, are all now putting in tube systems.feedback

Jul 07 2005

This was not a terrorist attack against the mighty and the powerful. It was not aimed at presidents and prime ministers. It was aimed at normal working class Londoners – black and white, Muslim and Christian, Hindu and Jew, young and old. An indiscriminate attempt to slaughter irrespective of any considerations for age, for caste, for religion, whatever.feedback
