One of Labour’s biggest donors and supporters, Lord Alan Sugar, has today tweeted:
“I don’t care if Ed Miliband is backing Livingstone. I seriously suggest NO-ONE votes for Livingstone in the Mayoral elections.”
And: “Livingstone must NOT get in on 3rd May.”
Lord Sugar donated a total of £69,424 to Labour or to Mr Miliband’s office in 2011, including £12,576 as rcently as December. He is of course a prominent member of the Jewish community and was believed to have been extremely angry at Ken’s behaviour towards Jews.
Ken’s campaign is in crisis now.
