When I tell you I love this city!! So while Donald Trump is looking for labourers to help build his wall to keep Mexicans out and intolerance for religious and ethnic groups rise elsewhere, London forged ahead with progressive behaviour, liberal views and civility by electing the very first Muslim mayor of London – the Labour party’s Sadiq Khan.
I was ready to vote for a banana if it would save us from the bumbling buffoon that is Boris Johnson, but it would seem Londoners wanted a whole lot more than that as Sadiq Khan, the son of a Pakistani bus driver who grew up in public housing in inner city London, shot through the polls to beat the Conservative Party’s Zac Goldsmith – a name that reads like it was formed from the old money and privilege. I mean, he is brother to Jemima Khan! (No relation; just an English lady who married a rich Pakistani cricketer-cum-politician. I know, irony, right?!)
The Conservative party has been steadily distancing itself from Goldsmith’s campaign, calling it “appalling” and “very foolish.”
Either way, we’re happy for a bit of Labour sense, a stop gap from the Conservatives’ incessant cuts and slashes, and we say a warm welcome to Mr Sadiq Khan!
