    Jonathan The Ken Livingston affair is not just about criticism of Israel and support for the Palestinians. The story goes back a long way, the struggle against Thatcher, the fight for affordable public transport, help for the aged, for gay and lesbian rights, free speech, the anti-war and anti-Bush demos, the ongoing conflict with the racist (and long-time antiSemitic) Daily Mail group... however this is not the place for a British political discussion. The zionist lobby here has been after Ken's blood for years; thank god, unlike most politicians he hasn't wavered and given in and apologised; he has stuck to his guns and is consequently very popular and even loved by his constituents, not something you could say of your Blairs and your Bushes.
