Rich Jews won't vote Labour – Red Ken

Ken Livingstone doesn't think Jewish people will vote Labour in London, "because they are rich".

Livingstone made this bizarre statement in reference to canvassing votes for his campaign to oust Conservative rival Boris Johnson as London's elected mayor.

Labour leader Ed Miliband is Jewish. You might ask how Red Ken expects his own boss to vote?

Miliband, although not religious in lifestyle, is a wealthy man of Jewish origin living in North London. In accordance with Jewish tradition, he smashed a glass at his wedding last year.

We all know that politicians target some voter demographics above others, but they are supposed to do it with some subtly and without monumental PR gaffes, like Ken's sledgehammer.

Livingstone's logic suggests that, demographically speaking, he has written off the vote of his own Labour leader.
