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.

> Most Britons hate GWB anyway, not that it > matters. 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.
