Labour London mayor hopeful Sadiq Khan is busy trotting out his new favourite line that the Tories are all a bunch of racists, using the example of one loony councillor to justify his “I don’t trust the Tories on race” dog whistle:
For some strange reason Sadiq had nothing to say about this loony Labour councillor of similar standing in his own party, who was suspended for sending a racist email about Muslims. Or the Labour councillor accused of distributing racist leaflets about her Asian opponent. What about the Labour grouping that accused its local party of institutional racism? Or the Labour peer who resigned after making anti-Semitic comments. Not to mention the Labour MP who was forced to apologise for sending a racist tweet. Let alone the Labour MP who was accused of stirring up race hate to win votes. Does Sadiq only see racism when it he can use it to score political points?
