Letter: A leader for London

Sir: David Aaronovitch's line that anyone who is not New Labour is irresponsible and like a teenager is no argument at all ("These rebels may be game for a laugh, but they're good for nothing", 9 February). Many of us support Ken Livingstone because we have long memories, not short ones. He got things done and he had a transport policy. For people who try to get about London, that is as important as his jokes.

I am surprised Aaronovitch did not observe that Livingstone supporters do not wash their milk bottles. Perhaps he ran out of space.
