The Ever Forgetful Mr Khan
Listen to the Words Sadiq Does Not ‘Recall’ Using

Guido’s preferred Labour candidate for Mayor of London has got into a bit of bother today known as “trying to bullsh*t a journalist”. After Sadiq Khan laid it on thick at a meeting of trade unionists, telling them he supported direct action, the Standard confronted him:

“Mr Khan’s spokesman denied he had mentioned “direct action” at the meeting, organised by Unions Together, the Trade Union Group and CLASS. After being sent a transcript by the Standard, the spokesman said neither he nor Mr Khan recalled using those words.”

Fortunately Guido is able to offer an aide-mémoire to Mr Khan and his forgetful spinner. There was a tape:

Remember yet?

Do you “recall” now, Sadiq?

It’s just like when he couldn’t remember quite how long he had known a convicted terrorist

UPDATE: Statement from Sadiq:

“Strikes are a sign of failure in any dispute and we always urge both sides to get round the table and sort out their differences by negotiation. Marches and protest have always played a crucial role in British democracy but breaking the law, intimidation or bullying – whether by unions or employers – can never be justified.”

    Why don’t we send Sadiq to help the Jihadis in Syria?

    It would be good work experience for him

    The photo shows an MP talking to a member of the Met, its hard to tell who is the most corrupt MP’s or the Met.

    “Bob Crow funeral:
    Thousands line funeral procession route and scores hold banners as Crow’s coffin is carried in horse-drawn carriage”

    Wonder if this would have happened if it was IDS’s funeral?

    “I wouldn’t recommend breaking the law… but I think the one thing that can be done is direct action”

    This guy has been caught lying on tape. I’d suggest someone has a go at cleaning up the audio so we can hear him plotting to damage London quite clearly.

    saddiq wants to go for the London mayor post because after he ousted Tom Cox his majority is shrinking, so much that the local labour party have been cavassing between elections in my ward, even though its solid labour.

    They obviously do not think he will be an asset to them.

    Mind you I think that with his terroirist mate now in the USA, I think his prison visits have reduced.

    As a mayor he will not have the personality and I think he does not fancy his chances at the next election as part of north wandsworth in now in his constituency which is solid tory

      Odd. I thought his terrorist connections would boost his popularity in an enriched London area.

Eddie Izzard, in his thirteenth year involved in politics, says he’s not cursed because it took Sir Alex Ferguson “seven years to win the premiership so it doesn’t really matter.”

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
