London mayor Sadiq Khan, a Labour Party pro-EU candidate who replaced Johnson, accused him of starting “off with platitudes about immigration” but conducting a campaign which “hasn’t been Project Fear, it’s been Project Hate”.
Sadiq Khan, London’s first Muslim mayor, announced Monday that “body shaming” advertisements will no longer be allowed in London’s public transport.
LONDON — London’s new mayor Sadiq Khan Wednesday promised to help Hillary Clinton defeat Donald Trump in November’s presidential election — insisting the race for the White House was now “personal.”
“Donald Trump’s ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe – it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of the extremists,” Khan said in a statement.
That the announcement of the new campaign came the day after London crowned its first Muslim leader, Mayor Sadiq Khan. Islamic Relief called it a “nice irony” that the two events coincided.

London and other European capitals are on alert amid fears Islamist terrorists are planning an outrage on New Year’s Eve.
