Khan Plays Pandemic Politics with Pay Packet mdi-fullscreen

Sadiq Khan has launched yet another PR stunt today, announcing he has taken a voluntary pay cut of more than £15,000 in an attempt to balance London’s finances amid the Coronavirus squeeze. Of course, he simultaneously asked for millions from the Government to bail out local authorities…
