Early counts: "Red Ken" Livingstone, UK Labour party getting whomped.

Counting still continues but early reports have the execrable crypto-Commie getting paddled.

Here’s some background on Red Ken. Here’s more by the erudite Theodore Dalrymple:

The real significance of the affair is this: only in a frivolous and debased country could a man as inarticulate, rude, and uncouth as Livingstone be considered fit for public office of any kind, let alone an important public office.

As for the Conservative winner, Boris Johnson, he’s a piece of work and I’m not a big fan. Even among the feckless Tories, BoJo has distinguished himself as a real waste of distinguished hair.


Not only has he tried to renounce his American citizenship, apparently more or less on a whim, he’s also a useless appeaser who wants to give nukes to Iran.

But as with many elections this year, I’m resigned to counting the “least worst” outcome as a victory.

Yee-haw! Zippidy-doo-dah! Enthusiasm!

Well, maybe this will help (from the first link) about the election’s consequences for Labour:

Sky’s political editor Adam Boulton says the result is “beyond the worst” predicted by most analysts.

“This a shattering result for Gordon Brown and Labour,” he said.

“200 seats lost was very bad, 300 seats lost was chronic. Beyond that is panic territory.

I blame George Bush!

UPDATE: Looks official. Good day for the Tories and Bojo, about whom there’s more info here.

…the self-confessed “bumbling buffoon” has suddenly become one of the most powerful men in Britain, with an £11 billion budget under his control.

His shambolic appearance, colourful love life and TV comedy career were relentlessly derided by his opponents, but they have in the end turned out to be his great strengths, as they have given him an undoubted popularity with the general public.

MORE: To paraphrase Paul Anka, “You’re on freakin’ notice, Bloomberg.
