Ken Livingstone has turned the blunt tool of comparing people to Nazis into a fine art. We all do it, and we're all meant to apologize for it. But he won't! Instead, he expands on the comparison he made between the Daily Mail/Evening Standard and fascists. Over three weeks. The reporter was just doing his job was he? Well, Livingstone has a reply for that: "'I'm only doing my job' is the thin end of the immoral wedge that at its worst extreme leads to the crimes and horrors of the holocaust, Rwanda and Bosnia. We are all responsible for our own actions."
