Labour peer Lord Sugar has urged people not to vote for his party’s candidate Ken Livingstone.
The peer defied Labour leader Ed Miliband by telling his 1.8 million followers on Twitter not to back the former mayor’s bid for re-election.
“I seriously suggest NO ONE votes for Livingstone in the Mayoral elections,” he wrote.
I don’t care if Ed Miliband is backing Livingstone . I seriously suggest NO ONE votes for Livingstone in the Mayoral elections
