Ken Livingstone

There was a time when Ken Livingstone had something to say. As leader of the Greater London Council he did some good things. My dad was a big fan of his Fares Fair policy for cheap bus and tube travel. The GLC also put on some great gigs before being abolished by Mrs Thatcher in 1986.
Ken seemed to spend much of 2016 locking himself into toilets and talking about Hitler, but this feature from the NME, 9 April, 1983 is a good look at one of the main oppositions to Thatcherism in the early 80s.
