At least 15 MPs including Liz Kendall, Stella Creasy, and London mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan have called on Livingstone to be kicked out of party.

Ken Livingstone’s comments are appalling and inexcusable. There must be no place for this in our Party.

Ken Livingstone’s comments this morning were despicable – he should be suspended from the Party immediately.

We must not allow Labour’s proud history of fighting racism & prejudice to be put at any further risk. Ken Livingstone should be suspended.
