Ken Livingstone's suspension from the Labour Party is hopefully a sign that Labour is finally going to crack down on anti-Semitism. Like many party members I am embarrassed to be in the same party as the rag bag of nasties who have been exposed over the past few months.
What is particularly bad about Ken Livingstone is that he is actually a member of the National Executive, the very body supposed to deal with the problem. I assume that his suspension, and probably soon to come expulsion, will mean he will not be on the ballot for election.
I wonder whether the other members of the Grassroots slate will be making any statements on what they think of the scandal.
