|Ken Slams 'Nazi' Tactics
- Livingstone tells his side of home loan story
KEN LIVINGSTONE has attacked his detractors for using Nazi tactics in the latest row over the London mayor hopeful's finances.
Earlier this week, The Times ran a story about Livingtone getting a loan from his company to fund a Brighton house purchase and Brian Sedgemore, an MP loyal to Prime Minster Tony Blair and his favoured candidate Frank Dobson, immediately called for a huge investigation.
"It's the sort of coverage you get when you have convicted a Nazi war criminal hiding in Britain for years," said Livingstone, who explained that as his company was not a public company, he had broken no law in, effectively, loaning himself money.
