Bye, bye Ken
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.
