Red Ken does it again

Ken LivingstoneThe BAA is trying to take out an absurd injunction to stop a peaceful climate change protest happening at Heathrow.

Leaving aside the fact that the new owners want to curb the right to free speech in this country, which is the very cornerstone of democracy (that’s the right-on bit out of the way), I was pleased to hear that Ken Livingstone has waded in with his size 9s.

He described BAA bosses as “out of their skull”, and added that no dialogue had taken place between them and TFL, even though BAA is trying to stop people travelling to Heathrow on the Piccadilly Line.

Then, and this is the best bit, Ken added: “The new Spanish bosses of BAA must still think they’re living under the rule of Franco.”

He just can’t help himself, can he?
