Ken Livingstone said today that he’d rather be gardening and looking after his newts than appearing on the media to defend his remarks about Hitler. But defend them he did, perhaps under the motto ‘when you’re in a hole, keep digging!

prime minister’s questions includes …

The Prime Minister: (Q7.) “It is very simple: anti-Semitism is effectively racism, and we should call it out and fight it wherever we see it. Frankly, the fact that a Labour Member of Parliament, with the Labour Whip, made remarks about the ‘transportation’ of people from Israel to America, talked about a ‘solution’ and is still in receipt of the Labour Whip is quite extraordinary.
The shadow Chancellor said** about these people: ‘Out, out, out. If people express these views: full stop they’re out. People might be able to reform their views and the rest of it. On this? I can’t see it.’
‘…I’m not having it. People might say “I’ve changed my views” – well, do something in another organisation!
Frankly, there will be too many hours in the day before that happens to the MP in question.”
