Socialist Action

Apparently Ken Livingstone’s Socialist Action cell at City Hall is new to the Sunday Times which prints this piece this morning.

Anyone Googling members of the Mayor’s team such as Redmond O’Neill, Neale Coleman and John Ross (according to the The TaxPayers’ Alliance Town Hall Rich List all three were paid £117,882K last year) would have come across Socialist Action. The most amusing commentaries on their behaviour is provided by the Weekly Worker, a publication of the Communist Party of Great Britain, for instance. Pretty turgid but typical of wild lefties falling out with each other – Leninists duffing up the Trotskyists again.

Weekly Worker was particularly down on Anne Kane, another SA bunny, the lady the Mayor paid £29K of public money (search for Kane) to trash Trevor Phillips.

The Telegraph has picked up the whole Dispatches/Phillips/Kane thing too.

One reply on “Socialist Action”

Phil, the Greater London Authority does not politically vet potential or existing employees, nor carry records regarding their political views, and it would indeed be unlawful and a breach of employment and human rights for it to do so.

The only important, and lawful, criteria regarding the record of Greater London Authority staff is to be found in policies that have been successfully delivered.
