Contrived. Corrupt. Corrosive

Ken Livingstone’s ego was always going to be his (and arguably Corbyn’s) undoing. But the contrived charges of anti-Semitism would have been landed on the Corbynistas regardless of whoever it was within the ranks daring to challenge the pro-zionist right wing of the Labour Party.

There is a powerful alliance at play which is seeking, quite perversely, to distort facts to accommodate the eventual slaying of a democratically elected leader – one who has a huge mandate within the Labour party membership at large.
