Livingstone might benefit from Rahman’s victory, as it has allowed him to resuscitate his ‘Red Ken the insurgent’ pose – and you can’t get much more cynically subversive than this latest stunt. Questions will and should be asked of his close association with an ally of the Islamic Forum for Europe, to say nothing of Rahman’s alleged campaign irregularities. Logically this should damage Livingstone, but the areas from where he will draw his support are not really like Tonbridge Wells.
The author is referring himself to the support “Red Ken” gave to Rahman before the elections. The question now is, if that support (after the Labour candidate, Red Ken recommended to vote for Lutfur so the Tories couldn’t win) could cause his expulsion from the party (don’t think that will happen). It also opens the question about what party in that case, would Red Ken choose to support.
(Gee. I love that cartoon 😛 ).
