Former London Mayor Ken Livingstone gives advice to Khan

Former London Mayor Ken Livingstone has told the current incumbent Sadiq Khan to get behind Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn as the party’s conference hots up in Liverpool.

In a reference to Boris Johnson, Mr Livingstone apparently said: “The track record of the former mayors of London is they don’t become prime minister.”

“What Sadiq wants is a Labour government that will provide him with the investment that London needs, he is not going to get that under the Tories so we’ve all got to work to get a Labour government,” he added.

Khan has already congratulated Corbyn following his victory, although he did originally distance himself from the Islington North MP.

Livingstone is currently suspended from the Labour Party following a row over remarks about Hitler. “It’s like my life has been gutted — not being there, not being able to join in the celebration of Jeremy’s triumph,” Livingstone said.
