London Mayor Ken Livingstone has launched an astonishing attack on US President George W Bush, calling him "corrupt".

The mayor said: "I think George Bush is the most corrupt American president since Harding in the Twenties.

"He is not the legitimate president."

He later added: "This really is a completely unsupportable government and I look forward to it being overthrown as much as I looked forward to Saddam Hussein being overthrown."

Asked about Mr Livingstone's comments, White House Press Secretary, Ari Fleischer, said: "First of all, I've never heard of the fellow. Second, I'm not going to dignify it with a response."

And in a statement, officials from the US embassy in London, said:

"Mayor Livingstone's opinions about the United States are a matter of complete indifference to the American embassy, the American government and the American people."

Ari should have told him to "sit on it".

"red" Ken Livingston is a reknown leftist.  Most Britons hate GWB anyway, not that it matters.

No big deal.

Not entirely true, some of  us respect him, but it doesnt matter one way or the other really :)

Red Ken's good for London (probably), I kinda wish he'd keep his nose out of everything else.
