    I notice Ken didn't get a mention in your piece - is he a Name We Do Not Mention at the nulli tertius residence? :giggle:
    I don't think the Tories ever considered inviting Livingstone to stand for them, albeit that over the years he must have been one of the Conservative Party's greatest electoral assets and even now he seems like the gift that keeps on giving.

    Ha, don't be slippery, you mentioned Labour people as well as Tories.

    Like I said, I think Ken's genius for politics in his old, sane incarnation, is something Nulli doesn't like to dwell on.

    I didn't mention the Labour candidate in the 2000 election Frank Dobson either.

    Ken had a genius for the promotion of Ken. He unquestionably lost Labour more support than he personally gained.

    You seem to be confused. I am celebrating the fact that the Tory attacks did not work. It was they who attempted to brand him as a Muslim extremist. To argue that it was the Labour Party is five star ********.
    Craaaaaap - ever since this started the Labour Party has been wanting to make this an "Obama" moment. The truth of the matter is the Khan is not a muslim in any meaningful way (eg he has voted in favour of same sex marriage and more or less every "right on" liberal idea going at total odds with more or less everything Islam stands for).

    The conservatives RESPONDED with their failed "hate" campaign but it was the Labour party that made this election focus on the "Lets prove we're not Islamophobic". I suspect this might have damaged the fabric of London for a while - it will be harder to critise Islam without appearing to be a right wing extremist.... As this whole thread sort of proves.... There actually have been posts on this thread where it has been suggested that those opposed to Khan are racist (or similar).

    This. Trying to use the outdated, 'this is good and if you don't agree you are racist card' whilst all the while trying to brush their treasure trove of anti-semitic comments and members under the carpet... its a joke

    "We're going to smear anyone who is a Muslim and who stands for high office using terrorism as the pretext and with the calculated tone and insulting manner used by people like UKIP, even though we are supposedly nice, safe, middle of the road, One Nation Tories, to define brown people and anyone frankly that we don't like as strange, debased, savage and 'other' in a way that exactly replicates the racist attitudes that underlie it. We won't challenge in any way the entrenched British colonialist and imperialist mindset that feeds these attitudes and when challenged, we will claim it is all the fault of the Left and that it is them who are confused and not us who play the race and religious hate cards whenever it looks as though members of the ethnic minorities are getting above their station." - D Cameron and a lot of the hate posters on TSR.

    Your explanation sounds too childish to be true.

    No you have just called everyone who voted against Khan a bigot. Khan DID share a platform with these people - it was not a made up story, he did do it.

    you are using extremist language of hate and division. That is what Labour do - call everyone else bigots and never take any blame themselves. That is how it gradually became anti-semitic - people are afraid to critise labour in case they get labelled racist.

    Which is why the Tories ran the GLC from 1967 to 1973 and from 1977 to 1981.

    You choose the mayor because of their skills, not their religion, race, colour or whatnot. Obviously he had a great campaign and it worked.
    It is very funny to see this post about a Mayor who supports affirmative action based on faulty premises.

    A big majority of Londoners voted for a Muslim Mayor of London. Far, far more than just the Muslims living in London.

    It's no wonder that we are seeing a rash of xenophobic and racist-oriented UKIP-style threads on TSR this morning, as the far right go into shock that a clear majority of people don't share their views, won't react to their dog whistle politics and believe that a tolerant, multiracial London is not just possible but a current reality.

    Will the right wing headbangers please take a lesson from this and stop trying to fill TSR with hate messages every morning? Pretty please?
    Absolutely agree 100%

    No that poster (and ou've agreed with them) have just called everyone who voted against Khan a bigot. Khan did share a platform with extremist people - it was not a made up story, he did do it.

    This is an utter disgrace. The end of the free Western world is imminent when a Muslim becomes the mayor of a city like London. In 30 years London, and the rest of the UK will be totally under the control of slam. By then our politically correct politicians who are now selling us out to Islam will all be dead, and the few who then maybe do survive will then deny their involvement in this betrayal sell-out.

    White Brits are in the minority in London, and few of them care much either way e.g. they're ivory tower liberals like you, or else part of the exodus
