When Ken Livingstone made a prosaic – but totally insensitive – point that, because Hitler had espoused the concept of German Jews being transported to Palestine he was acting like a Zionist, he was rightly suspended from the Labour party. (Some feel that he should have been expelled.) When the UK’s ‘Joke’ Foreign Secretary makes a similarly prosaic point that Russia will make political capital out of the The World Cup, and then expands this to comparing¬†Putin to Hitler, he remains in post.

Surely we deserve better than this?
