Ken Livingstone is a serious swordsman
Interesting to see that Ken Livingstone is a cocksmith of the first order - five kids with three different women takes some beating.
It is also interesting to see that this story has emerged now, just as the race for Mayor of London really hots up.
Will it matter? Well, given that Boris Johnson, the Tory candidate, is also a celebrated shagger, probably not. That may be why his camp have refused to comment on any of this. The Liberal-Democratic candidate, Brian Paddick has also decided to keep quiet, although that may have something to do with the fact that he is a poof. Glass houses and all that...
What amazes me about all this is the notion that it is in any way newsworthy. Maybe I have lived in Mexico for too long, but the notion that there is a senior political figure who doesn't have a string of mistresses is too ludicrous for words.
