Last year Livingstone said of two Indian-born entrepreneurs involved in the London Olympics: "If they're not happy, they can always go back to Iran and see if they can do better under the Ayatollahs."This isn't quite right, the two businessmen who Livingstone said ought to go bacl to Iran were not Indian, but Iranian born Jews. So the supposed even handedness of his offensiveness amounts to him being willing to insult Jews and other Jews.
Any allegations of racism are hard to make stick, though, because Livingstone is indiscriminate in his discrimination. In 2005 he was accused of anti-Semitism after an altercation with a newspaper journalist.
