Labour Suspend Ken Livingstone


The Labour Party has confirmed that it has suspended Ken Livingstone following his earlier comments about anti-semitism.

Over twenty Labour MPs called for his resignation including Chris Byrant, the Shadow Leader of the House of Commons, who said:

“I’m sick and tired of people trying to explain it away and, yes, I’m talking to you Ken Livingstone”.

A Labour party spokesman said that there would be an investigation following allegations that Ken Livingstone had “brought the party into disrepute”.
