The former mayor of London took to Press TV, an Iranian state-run network, recently to express his disdain for the Bush White House and his assurance that the Boston Marathon bombings were brought upon the United States because of its injustices abroad.
London's rumpled, comic and outspoken Boris Johnson has won a second term as mayor of the British capital, triumphing in a surprisingly close election that installs the unvarnished and unpredictable Conservative as host of the 2012 Olympics.
One sports an unruly blond mop, spouts Latin aphorisms and loves to ride his bicycle. The other is a neat, newt-loving socialist who prefers to travel by subway.
"Very often, people get incredibly angry about injustices that they see," Ken Livingstone said Friday, according to a transcript by the Middle East Media Research Institute, a nonprofit.
But Ken Livingstone, London's former mayor, said Saturday he turned down a commander of the Order of the British Empire, or CBE, recognizing his services to the Olympics because he doesn't believe politicians should get the queen's honors.
