Livingstone at Odds With Government Again

This time it's over the recent comments about Islam:

Bob Blackman: What is your reaction to the announcement by the Communities Secretary that Islamic centres that promote isolationism should be closed?

Ken Livingstone: I believe (hope) you are misquoting the Minister. 'Isoationism' is a vague and undefined concept. Action should be taken against any institution of any faith which breaks the law.

And having a Secretary of State for Communities is a pretty vague and undefined concept too. Let's hope we change some of these Orwellian department titles when we get back into government, hopefully before we have MiniTruth (Alastair Campbell) and MiniLuv (John Reid) foisted on us.
