“This is the first time in the six weeks that anyone has come along with a serious analysis and debate about the actual history” – Ken Livingstone.

Ken Livingstone gets grilled on his historical claims about Hitler and Zionism.  Some key moments:

8:46 – Holocaust survivor Mala Tribich MBE delivers video message to Ken expressing her offence.

35:00 – Ken concedes his historical source, Lenni Brenner, is anti-Semitic, saying in his defence that he read Brenner’s book 30 years ago and “my memory’s not my best point”.

46:18 – Ken refuses to answer whether he would call Hamas his “friends”.

Alan Mendoza also discussed the offence he caused to the Jewish community, as well as Ken’s views on Hamas and Jeremy Corbyn.

No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend’s were.
Each man’s death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.

“I am a vegetarian. I personally don’t eat meat and haven’t for a very very long time.

I think meat eaters, if they wish to carry on eating meat, that’s up to them to do so. I don’t stop people eating meat indeed many people that I know very well eat meat often in front of me and I tolerate it with the normal decency, courtesy and respect that you would expect from me.”

Corbyn dismisses call for meat eaters to be treated like smokers with ad campaigns

“Corbyn‎ is clearly loving the attention after years of being ignored and derided. Meeting the people keeps him “humble”, he says at one point. It is the most revealing moment in this gripping film. The thing about the humble is that they never need to point out that they are humble. It is part of the job description of the humble that they don’t say “look at me being humble”. Yet he signs his autograph with what looks like ‎a gold pen and even says he is going to sign his crop of apples.”
