Stick it to Ken

Say lo to Ken
Londoners fed up with London Mayor Ken Livingstone can now buy a Hebrew and English sticker that offers a message direct to him.
The 'Say lo to Ken' sticketr takes the Hebrew word for 'no' which is 'lo' and costs £1 with 10% of the revenue going to an Israeli charity that helps disabled people take part in sport.
Already over 200 stickers have been sold from an initial print run of 1000.
"I'm sure Mr Livingstone's parents never meant to give him a name which lends itself to a play on words in Hebrew," said Mark Rivlin who runs Create Services, a design agency that counts Elite Tiles and the League Against Cruel Sports as clients.
Rivlin feels not enough is being done to curb the London Mayor and his various verbal attacks being made on members of the Jewish community which is why he decided to produce the stickers and let Jewish Londoners express how they feel.
"Either we take it on the chin like the Board of Deputies and don't do anything, or we stand up and say what we think about Livingstone. I wanted to see how much feeling there is in the community and judging by the responses I have been getting, I would say Mr Livingstone is about as popular as a Manchester United fan at Elland Road."
