Beyond our Ken

  • Comment

Astragal was chatting to his old buddy Ken Livingstone recently in Dalston, east London, where the mayor was opening the third of his 100 public spaces in London. Poor old Ken had suffered a torrid time during his opening speech. He was berated, heckled and jeered by a group of grizzly-bearded protesters calling for a halt to the gentrification of their beloved Hackney. The louder Ken spoke the louder he was booed, until he had to shout to make himself heard, turning his face as red as (Old) Labour. You would have thought he would be used to it by now, though. After all, he did support Vauxhall Tower. Boo Ken, boo!
