    Livingstone throughout his political career has continuously been controversial for the sake of controversy and always having a dig at Israel and /or Jews. What has he actually achieved …NOTHING!! He is not worthy of being a member of a once great party yet alone being on the National Executive, the media should stop giving him the publicity he thrives on and then may be he will disappear. As for Corbyn, he will never do anything about racism or anti-Semitism in his party or elsewhere as he would not want to offend bis despicable friends in Hamas and Hezbollah
