18 Doughty Street looks at Ken Livingstone

This is the third ad campaign from 18DoughtyStreet.com and this week's two minute ad attacks the high spending, low delivery record of London Mayor Ken Livingstone. Everything the advert says is sourced here.
At that link, I find items 8, 9 and 10 particularly interesting,
8 Al-Qaradawi is the strongest force for the modernisation of Islam
"Unbelievably, Mayor Livingstone asserted in the question period that Yusuf al Qaradawi was the "strongest force for modernization of Islam - he is the future of Islam."
9 Qaradawi describes suicide bombing against Israel as duty
'Recently he told Al-Jazeera that he was not alone in believing that suicide bombings in Palestinian territories were a legitimate form of self defence for people who have no aircraft or tanks. He said hundreds of other Islamic scholars are of the same opinion. In this respect, he is very much in tune with what the vast majority of people in the Arab world believe. Defending suicide bombings that target Israeli civilians Sheikh A-Qaradawi told the BBC programme Newsnight that "an Israeli woman is not like women in our societies, because she is a soldier.'
Go to the link for item 10, and all the others.

And 18 Doughty Street doesn't even mention Hugo

Livingstone also spent taxpayer's money suing Aleksander Boyd of VCrisis. Here's the latest from VCrisis: Guardian's Comment is Free censors Vcrisis
