Oi! Give us back our mayor!
I’m really quite angry about this. He was rude and offensive to a journalist. An annoying prick of a journalist who was making an arsehole of himself. And clearly someone who can give it out but cannot take it, which is a hypocrisy I cannot bear. Why should he apologise for hurting his feelings? Go cry at home Oliver Finegold. Being Jewish doesn’t exempt you from insult, and it’s actually quite offensive to others that you believe you can use your religion\race to duck behind your own shortcomings as a human being. Fuck you.
(Incidentally – I’m aware it wasn’t the Evening Standard that brought the action. But they turned it into a story when there wasn’t one in the first place. So the point remains.)
Just to remind you why some unelected body has seen fit to remove our democratically elected mayor for a month:
Ken Livingstone was recorded asking reporter Oliver Finegold if he is a “German war criminal”.
Mr Finegold replies: “No, I’m Jewish, I wasn’t a German war criminal. I’m quite offended by that.”
The mayor then says: “Ah right, well you might be, but actually you are just like a concentration camp guard, you are just doing it because you are paid to, aren’t you?”
Anyone who thinks that’s racist, or an insult directed at anyone other than Mr. Finegold and the Daily Mail group have a very limited intelligence. Come Back Ken!
