Livingstone supporters not 'serious members' of Labour

Ken Livingstone, the former London mayor, was suspended from the party for two years on Tuesday for comments he made about Adolf Hitler and Zionism. The Chief Rabbi accused Labour of "failing the Jewish community" by not expelling Ken Livingstone.

Lord Levy, a Labour peer and formerly the party's chief fund-raiser, agrees with the Chief Rabbi. He told the Today programme those members of the party who support Livingstone are not "serious members of the party". He criticised the leadership saying Labour needed to return to being a party that is the government of the future.
