Former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone has been suspended from the Labour party following 'anti-Semitic' comments that have offended many of his fellow party members, including mayoral hopeful Sadiq Khan.
And as you'd expect from someone who's just said of Hitler "He was supporting Zionism before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews", Twitter is not being kind to Ken. It also doesn't help that he 'hid' from the media in a disabled toilet. Or that it's Ed balls Day.
Here's what's been going on in the Twittersphere — much of it apparently sitcom based:
