Ken deserves to be involved in Olympic celebrations.

You’ll rarely find much sympathy towards Ken Livingstone on this blog, but even I’m uncomfortable at the news – if true – that he hasn’t been invited to any of tomorrow’s festivities to mark one year until the London Olympics. He apparently mentioned on the news this evening that he will be watching from home, having not been invited.

Whatever we might think of his mayoralty – and much of it was divisive and crass – his contribution towards the winning of the 2012 Olympic bid was probably his single biggest achievement. He, just like Tony Blair, deserves some credit for the marvellous spectacle that London has to look forward to next year. He should be fully involved in the celebrations.
