Unelected quango suspends Ken Livingstone.

Ken Livingstone has been suspended by an unelected and unaccountable body directly appointed by the labour government.

While ken is not a member of the Green Party, Jenny Jones, a Green member of the GLA strongly supports him.

"What has happened today is that undemocratic officials have created chaos at the heart of London's elected governnment, they have thrown the whole organisation into a spin. Londoners voted for this Mayor - not any other.

"The Green Party believe in accountability at every level of government. What happens to Ken should be up to the Assembly and the electorate - if we want him to apologise that's up to us, it's not up to ten unelected, unknown appointees to turn the whole show into a West End farce." she said.

To me, this looks like yet another attempt by Blair to kill democracy in Britain by silencing any opposition.
