Yet Another Erosion of Democracy

Livingstone suspended for "Nazi" jibe - Yahoo! News UK

I do not in any way condone the comments made by Ken Livingstone, but neither do I in any way condone the way that the LES journalists have hounded him over the years; if the truth were told I am only surprised that he had not made such comments long before he did. The fact that he can be suspended by a panel of unelected people is completely outrageous; if anyone should sit in judgment it should be a panel of elected members who are answerable to the public who elected them. Anyone who has followed the career of Ken will know only too well that it is his style to be rude to journalists, especially if they are as obnoxious as those from the LES have been to him; personally I thought that journalists had thick skins, apparently this one was a sensitive little flower, highly unusual for a journalist!
