Khan Breaks Key Election Promise: Travel Fares to Rise

khan freeze

Sadiq Khan’s headline manifesto promise was to freeze travel fares. He promised “Londoners won’t pay a penny more for their travel in 2020 than they do today.” This pledge is from his manifesto:

khan

Throughout the campaign Khan dodged any and all questions about how this policy could be funded. And now we know why…

Khan won’t extend the freeze to the travelcards, daily caps and monthly Oyster cards. So the payment methods used by most commuters will continue to rise, despite Sadiq promising “Londoners won’t pay a penny more for their travel”. He’s broken his number one manifesto promise in his first month. This is a broken promise of Nick Clegg proportions… 

Khan’s £105,000-a-Year Aide Never Worked Outside Politics

jack stenner

Jack Stenner is Sadiq Khan’s new Mayoral Director for Political and Public Affairs, paid £105,893-a-year by the taxpayer. Young Jack is just 28 years old, so he has done remarkably well to land a six figure publicly-funded salary. Especially since he’s never worked outside of politics…

Stenner’s CV would make Andy Burnham blush:

2006-2009: Queen Mary University of London, Politics

2009-2010: Communications manager, Barry Gardiner MP

2010: Field team, Ed Miliband for Leader campaign

2010: Campaign manager, Yes to AV campaign

2011-2012: Director, Labour Friends of India

2012-2013: Head of Leader’s Office, Brent Council

2013-2015: Political adviser, Sadiq Khan

2015-2016: Political director, Sadiq for London campaign

2016: Mayoral Director for Political and Public Affairs

Every single job he’s had out of uni has been in politics. He now has one of the four most powerful jobs in City Hall. What’s the betting he’s parachuted into a safe seat in 2020…

Sadiq Raises EU Flag Above City Hall

City Hall sources note that an EU flag has been raised outside their office by the new mayor this morning. This is out of the ordinary. Under Boris the usual protocol was to have a union flag flanked by two City Hall flags, one of which was occasionally changed during state visits or in solidarity with countries which had suffered terror attacks. The City Hall employees Guido has spoken to do not recall an EU flag being raised before Sadiq was mayor…

Well Played, Paddy

Criticism of Sadiq Khan over his links to Suliman Gani fell flat partly because Cameron and Fallon cocked up their attack lines, though the new mayor’s spin operation deserves credit too. Paddy Hennessy successfully convinced his mates in the Lobby that Gani was actually a Tory and not a Labour supporter – mainly on the basis of a selfie with a clueless Zac. The press quickly turned their fire on Zac over his key attack line apparently falling apart…

The truth, as the video above shows, is that Gani is an Islamo-Socialist Labour supporter who vocally backed Corbyn for the leadership. Gani occasionally opportunistically shared non-partisan platforms with some Tories and candidates too. Sadiq’s team impressively persuaded the Lobby that this was somehow equal to – or even worse than – Gani sharing platforms with Khan nine times and publicly endorsing the Labour leader. Meaning very difficult questions about Sadiq’s past associates were swerved. Paddy played the game very well…

Congratulations Sadiq Khan “Who Defeated Millionaire Jew”

Khan Ally: “Israel is a Terrorist State Like ISIS”

100 hours until the polls open and Sadiq Khan is faced with Evening Standard front pages about Labour’s racism storm, not to mention what the Sundays have to bring. He might have been swift to condemn him, but Khan courted Ken and campaigned for him time and time again. This morning Ken told LBC he wanted to stop talking about Hitler and focus on getting the vote out for Sadiq…

Yesterday Jewish News revealed the Labour council leader in Brent called Israel “a terrorist state like ISIS”. Sadiq has campaigned alongside Muhammed Butt on multiple occasions. Butt is not a nobody, he is a council leader and an ally of Khan. To align yourself with one race row extremist could be considered misfortune, to align yourself with two, three, four, five

Khan: EU Should Not Be “Christian Club”

sadiq-khan

Sadiq Khan’s musings on Turkish accession to the EU make interesting reading in the light of the current situation. It’s an unusual argument – Khan claims that if Turkey is not allowed to join then Brussels would be discriminating against Muslims:

“Muslims across Europe will see the question for Turkish admission to the EU as a clear test of European inclusion.
