    so what's up, londoners and other brits? the suspension seems a bit extreme to me, what's the buzz over there?

    It may have been a stupid thing to say, and I am by no means a Livingstone fan, but I do think this whole thing is absolutely ridiculous.

    Finegold is a typical scummy tabloid journalist who deliberately and repeatedly provoked Livingstone leaving a party at night when he was (probably) slightly drunk. He knew what he was after and he got it. Big deal. I'm no great fan of Livingstone either but he doesn't deserve this.

    BTW the Daily Mail is about the most reactionary paper here, in may ways worse than the proletariat tabloids because to tries to appeal to the would-be middle classes - YAK!

    This is bloody ridiculous,the reporter is a well known twat.I can't see anything offensive in what Livingstone said(the reporter being Jewish should be more aware than most about his behaviour).For an unelected panel to suspend a elected mayor is too ridiculous for words.They are going to the high court to get an injunction and then are hoping for judical review.
