Bye, bye Ken

As our friends over at Babalu have pointed out, there is some good news out of London.

Voters in the British capital have just elected a new Mayor, Boris Johnson, from the Conservative Party, who comprehensively defeated the Labour Party incumbent, Ken "Red Ken" Livingstone.

Why good news?

Because Mr Livingstone is and has always been a shameless apologist for the Castro regime. During his last visit to Cuba, about 18 months ago, he described the now semi-retired dictator as an "inspiration to the world" and the Cuban "revolution" as "one of the high points of the 20th century".

So, it's good bye, Ken. Couldn't happen to a nicer bloke.
