You won’t get a clearer case of a mayoral candidate misleading voters than in this LBC interview. Asked about his links to the radical imam Suliman Gani, Sadiq Khan pretends he only shared a platform with Gani because he wasn’t aware the extremist was present. Specifically talking about Gani, Sadiq insists:

“Nick, you will know this because you’re a pro. You turn up at these events, often they’re two, three, four hours long. You’re the seventeenth speaker, there are three more after you.”

Khan leads listeners to believe he didn’t know Gani was there because of the number of other speakers and the length of the event.

This is demonstrably untrue. The photo below shows Khan and Gani together, side by side:

There weren’t seventeen other speakers between Khan and Gani. There wasn’t a four hour time difference. They stood right next to each other. There is no way Khan wouldn’t have seen Gani, and there is no way he wouldn’t have known who Gani is – he is his personal imam and the pair have exchanged friendly emails. To suggest to listeners he has only ever shared a platform with Gani unknowingly is a blatant and deliberate untruth. Sadiq Khan, bang to rights fibbing to voters about his links to an al-Qaeda sympathising Islamic extremist.

Dominic Cummings tells Damian Collins:

“You talk of ‘contempt of Parliament’. You seem unaware that most of the country feels contempt for Parliament and this contempt is growing.”
