Why are people on social media talking about Ken Livingstone mentioning Hitler?
Former London mayor Ken Livingstone has got a reputation for mentioning Hitler in interviews, and people on social media have taken to pointing it out whenever it happens. In an interview on 22 March 2017, he said:
"I think the other thing that Jeremy should do is re-introduce automatic re-selection. It’s really ridiculous that MPs in safe seats have a job for life ... I’m particularly talking about Chuka Umunna, Wes Streeting - basically it’s the same group of MPs who were screaming that I’d said Hitler was a Zionist and I was anti-semitic."
