Khan Admits “Giving Impression” He Held Extreme Views

Sadiq was grilled by Brillo during last night’s BBC mayoral debate on his links to radical imam Suliman Gani, a well-known name to Guido readers. Khan insisted he did not regret appearing on a platform with Gani but confessed he gave the impression he subscribed to his extremist views:

Andrew Neil: “Suliman Gani, who’s a supporter of Islamic State. You appeared on a platform with him nine times. During one of these times you must have found out what he really believed in?”

Sadiq Khan: “There are lots of campaigns and issues that I’ve been involved in as the chair of Liberty, as a human rights lawyer and as a politician which had cross-party support…”

AN: “Do you regret appearing on platforms with people like that?”

SK: “No, I regret giving the impression I subscribe to their views…”

Khan’s allies cry foul whenever he’s asked about this, but even he now admits it is an issue…
