    Ken Livingstone 'cannot stay in Labour', says Chakrabarti.

    Ken Livingstone has "brought shame" on Labour and it is "very difficult" to see how he can stay in the party, a close ally of Jeremy Corbyn has said.

    Labour peer Baroness Chakrabarti told the BBC the ex-London mayor, suspended over anti-Semitism claims, had brought the party "repeatedly" into disrepute.

    She also said it was disappointing her 2016 anti-Semitism review had not been implemented in full by Labour.

    Mr Livingstone says remarks on Hitler and Zionism were historically correct.

    OK, Ken Livingstone has ruffled a few feathers in his years of being in the Labour party, but I am sure many people will agree with me that he is simply a self-promoting and opinionated type like many others in the Labour and the Tory parties.

    Do the ROB-sters think that he should be thrown out of The labour Party because of his extremist and often outrageous views ?

    Poor old Ken, scapegoated again. He's not as bad as some of the others we have had in the past, or even currently; but he's become the squeaky wheel.

    Personally, I think that the likes of Ken Livingston, Dennis Skinner and even Tory Ken Clarke are amongst the personalities that keep the rest guessing and on their toes.

    We need people like that in parliament.

    There are always a few that think the unthinkable in politics and I too agree that we need these types of rebels to make us pay attention.

    Without them politics would be boring.

    Ahh, but, will he give up his lucrative Member of Parliament job and open up the seat for a re-election ?

    Probably not Papa.

    Anyway, what did he actually say that was anti-semitic ?

    He said that Hitler "supported the Zionists", did he not ?

    If that is all he said then he was right, as Hitler wanted to get rid of as many Jews, via Zionism, as he could without the expensive genocide he had made his mind up about.

    What I mean about this is the more Jewish people who voluntarily moved to the "promised land" via Zionism, the fewer would be left to have to exterminate.

    Comments please.

    Nasty, but factually accurate.
