The Ever Forgetful Mr KhanListen 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.”
