Alexander sparks Ken row

Alexander sparks Ken row
Douglas Alexander has triggered a row with Ken Livingstone after saying Mr Livingstone paid the “deserved price” when he lost the London mayoral election.

In an interview with the Evening Standard, Mr Alexander accused Mr Livingstone of trying to “divide voters into blocks” and said his comments on wealthy Jewish people were “wrong”.

“It’s not our politics to try and divide voters into blocks. The success of the Olympics reminds us that London’s greatness and Britain’s greatness is when we come together. And I think he paid a deserved price for some of the errors that he made.”

But Mr Livingstone has hit back on Twitter, saying the Shadow Foreign Secretary “represents a failed New Labour project that lost millions of votes”. He also invited him to discuss the issue on his radio show.
