You know Kevan Jones – the Labour MP who attacked Ken Livingstone for suggesting he “might need some psychiatric help”?

Is he the same Kevan Jones who, in 2010, said: “Any idiot in opposition who argues that Government legislation can somehow be got through without programme motions should be taken out to the nearest lunatic asylum”?

This Writer was just alerted to this evidence by a commenter, who deserves our thanks for digging it out.

Doesn’t his indignation at Ken Livingstone’s words seem hypocritical, now we know he used the same rhetoric himself – long after he revealed he had suffered from mental illness?

This has serious implications for David Blunkett, and any other Labour MP or member who supported Mr Jones and called for Mr Livingstone’s removal from the defence review.

Perhaps it’s time for them to withdraw their objections and make their own apologies.
