Scrap the Standards Board

I have had my own run in recently which resulted in a ludicrous reference to the Standards Board. As it happens the Standards Board realised that it was an entirely frivilous complaint and it proved to be, as I forecast, a ridiculous waste of public money. Now the Standatds Board have taken this decision in respect of Ken Livingstone which must surely hasten their own demise. How a bunch of unelected officials can suspend from office someone elected to run one of the World's biggest cities is beyond me.

Iain Dale is a sucker for punishment. Not content with Ken giving the Tories two trouncings in a row, the masochistic Mr Dale wants a third punch on the nose. As if the news on Ian's new best friend Comical Cami wasn't bad enough!
