    Don't get me wrong. I'd be calling him back for a second interview but would prefer if he understood that the job requires a little less casualness. It's what let Michael Foot down.

    They'd send him on his way with a pair of three quarter camouflage shorts and a logo'd T shirt

    That so-called Donkey Jacket had a designer label on its inside pocket. It just wasn't a suit.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    That designer jacket was two sizes too big and was a millstone round his neck. Unfortunately, society lends importance to gentlemen in office being appropriately attired. My job thankfully only requires me to be dressed. It's why I sometimes go to work dressed as a Japanese general

    Labour was the first price, the original purchase - money that was paid for all things. It was not by gold or by silver, but by labour, that all wealth of the world was originally purchased.

    Wealth of nations supposedly tne father of capitalism. He would be birling in his grave at the way his ideas are used - don't foget he also influenced the likes of karl marx - every time I hear a right wing economist talk about monetarism or how bankers and financial services are wealth creatorsand they just need to wave a magic wand I want to throw things at the tv. Thatcher and later tony blair came out with that kind of crap and it's such ridiculous nonsense. Left wing economics is just as wromg in it's own way we need somewhere in the middle.

    Flash news - Red Ken endorses candidate!

    That'll be all they talk about down my local tonight, then.

    "Mr Livingstone said the left-winger had "electrified" the campaign and was connecting with the public."

    Jeremy Corbyn could be prime minster - Ken Livingstone - BBC News

    I have never understood why the label Red attached to Ken is derogatory.
    I hope his support doesn't give Corbyn the kiss of death.

    The Russian "krasnaya" can be translated either as "red" or as "beautiful" and has been applied as a punning endearment to Mr Livingstone for as long as I can remember. Anyone who applies it intending to derogate the chap should take a remedial course in civility.

    I would have been delighted if Mr Livingstone had become Prime Minister himself. The slick unachievable broken promises of Tony Blair and the New Labour movement prevented it from happening.
