Please read Jonathan Freedland's brilliant piece on this man. I don't even offer a pull-quote; just read it in full. My only quibble is that the news about Livingstone was already bad enough four years ago.
And Ed Miliband could also do with pondering what Jonathan says. Livingstone may or may not have a prejudiced bone in his body, but it's his mind and his words that the leader of the Labour Party ought to be concerned about. (Thanks: L.)
