Ken’s lying makes quite a spectacle.

I was intrigued by Andrew Gilligan’s article last week, in which he noted that Ken Livingstone keeps telling anyone who’ll listen how brilliant his health is. In a recent interview with Amber Elliott (the same interview in which he compared Boris to Hitler), he went on and on about his fitness. He mentioned his low cholesterol level, his ‘heart profile of an Olympic runner’, and the fact that he still doesn’t need glasses. He’s clearly concerned that he might come across as a doddery old veteran compared to Boris’ relative youth and enthusiasm. Indeed, were he to win next year, he would be 70 by the end of the four-year term.

But wait, what was that about not needing glasses? As Milo Yiannopoulos points out, it’s simply a lie. A silly and unnecessary lie…
