Ken Livingstone supported by 76% of public


Ken Livingstone has been in a war of words with London's Evening Standard newspaper, since he compared one of its Jewish reporters to a Nazi concentration camp guard.

The mayor has said his words were not intended to cause offence to Jewish people and he would stick by his decision not to apologise to the journalist or his employers, the Daily Mail group.

Mr Livingstone says that 76% of public correspondence over the row has been supportive of his stance.

The Guardian's poll asked 'Is Ken Livingstone right not to apologise?'

76% voted YES
