Ken Livingstone - My Fake Diary

Wednesday, 8 August 2012

Lovely letter sent to the Guardian:

It was Ken Livingstone who had the courage to imagine this rough corner of east London could be transformed. Boris Johnson may get to enjoy the 2012 party, but I doubt his administration would have had the vision to take on such an audacious project.

This area has a long history of entrenched poverty, and our young people's futures have been stunted by low aspirations.

Yet today east Londoners stand a little taller, proud of our area.

This weekend, as we gather with friends and neighbours to enjoy the closing ceremony, we will raise a glass to you, Ken, to say thank you for dreaming big for east London.
