During the election campaign a popular joke was that if he lost, Livingstone would run off to a luxury villa in Venezuela before the skeletons in the cupboard are found.

I hope that the former Mayor gets to catch up on his tan while he is in Caracas, he was looking rather peaky the last time I saw him hanging around at city hall.
