It will be *very* interesting to see what kind of action this talk actually turns into. I found the article incomplete in that "political-speak-reporting" kind of way.

good heavens, he looks so sort-of pudgy and mellowed-out, doesn't he? (livingstone, that is) - so you mean londoners were seriously given a choice of voting for HIM or jeffrey archer?!?<P>yes, i WAS thinking of "disabled gay Bangladeshi bagpipers' festivals" when i saw his name in this context...

actually, as someone pointed out - here or elsewhere, i'm not sure - the word 'dance' doesn't appear in this summary of his position...but neither does anything else much, except film - and "the ethnic festival'/cultural diversity: surprise,surprise!<P>and, ken livingstone a 'normal politician', azlan: i don't THINK so!

Well, he's already waffling... Didn't he at one time declare his disdain of opera? And isn't he now going to functions at the opera?
