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.
