This website lets you track how many days it's been since Ken Livingstone mentioned Hitler
Share This Article:
Adolf Hitler has been the topic of many a conversation with Ken Livingstone this year – several days or months could pass and then the former London mayor somehow seems to mention the Fuhrer’s name again. In April, the Labour Party suspended Livingstone over a series of controversial claims that Hitler backed Zionism before “he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews”. Since then, Livingstone has mentioned the Fuhrer on several occasions and, in case you’re struggling to keep tally, there’s a new website that will track it for you. Days Since Ken Livingstone Mentioned Hitler was created by 21-year-old Miriam Steiner, who did so to “add a bit of humour to a really dire situation”. “What Ken is saying is appalling and it’s making me increasingly distressed. Humour makes awful things better,” Miriam, a member of the Jewish Labour Movement, said. “People forget that Jews, and especially Jewish members of Labour, are real people who are really struggling with the current situation in Labour. Many of us are feeling excluded and used as political pawns instead of people. “I guess this website is my way of reminding people the number of days since someone last made a comment that offends us. But mostly it’s just a joke website.”
