Ken Livingstone, former mayor of London and member of Britain’s Labour Party, excused the terrorists who were part of the 2005 London terrorist attacks and instead blamed then-British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Appearing on BBC Thursday, Livingstone, who was mayor of London at the time of the attacks, said of the suicide bombers, “Go and look what they put on their website. They did those killings because of our invasion of Iraq. They gave their lives, they said what they believed, they took Londoners’ lives in protest against our invasion of Iraq.”
He added, “and we were lied to by Tony Blair about Iraq, there were no weapons of mass destruction.”
Other BBC panelists took issue with Livingstone’s remarks. Comedian and former Labour political adviser Matt Forde said, “This idea that you can absolve the people that killed those innocent Londoners by blaming Tony Blair is shameful.
“Blame it on the people who carried out the atrocity.”
Conservative cabinet office minister Matt Hancock stated that Livingstone allowed the Islamic State “off the hook” for terrorist acts, while Kate Andrews, of the Adam Smith Institute, told Livingstone he was “accepting their excuses.” Other Labour MPs criticized Livingtone’s remarks on Twitter.
Livingstone is a muzzie lover. He’s a sick mofo.
Just think how many lives Livingstone could have saved in WWII by just surrendering to Hitler before a shot was fired.
Horsepuckey. They wanted to kill infidels and see their 1st non-goat virgins.
“RED” Ken, is that you?
I despise ‘Red Ken’. *spit*
Ken Livingstone is not a goat f*cker.
He is a goat f*ckee.
Sounds like he support war crimes.
Mahmood is going to be in a dire situation when he discovers himself surrounded for eternity by 72 virgins who are saving themselves for Achmed because he’s cooler.
To a liberal, protesting anything is a high form of worship.
When are Europeans going to start attacking dangerous fools like this?
Public hangings need to make a comeback in a huge way.
Sounds like he needs to be a former free man.....
I dont know what the laws are in England but there ought to be a law against supporting the enemy
Time was (WWII) they hanged traitors like Lord Haw Haw, England’s mouthpiece for Hitler.
One more Labour Party a-hole. Thanks markomalley.
ISIS hasnt done a majpr bombing run...on England ....Yet...
I sense if they had...that this rube would have graced the gallows already.
The left no longer even pretends to be sane.
You sense wrong. The left would celebrate this mook for 'giving the muslims a voice, at long last'.
Sounds like Red Ken is interviewing for the job of “Paid Liar” with ISIS .... good work for a commie if you can get it without having to drastically change your political and moral views.
oh there I go forgetting the worlds gone to hell in a handcart again...
If englandistan ever returns to sanity....perhaps
