Nothing but. Obama and his Muslim buddies are very transparent. Don't bother rebutting, any pro-Islam people. My opinion, and I am welcome to it.

It's called an analogy.

London has Fallen - excellent movie, well worth watching by the way.

With regards to Sadiq Khan - it is very exciting to have him as a Mayor. London has a huge amount of problems and hopefully he will address them. A son of a bus driver and lived in social housing and he knows the problems we face. Although I am a Conservative voter and always have been, this is the first time I voted for Labour. With regards to his religion, well, seeing our government is Conservative and Khan is Labour, he won't be able to sneeze without the media (and our Government) taking notice of it. He will build bridges between all faiths which is what we need right now here in London. Very exciting and promising times.

Thank you PF.
I was wondering when you'd come around with something to say about this.

Thanks for your personal perspective on this. We do hope it works out well.

It would be nice if Khan's faith was left to his private life. It really shouldn't matter. Especially to us here in the colonies.
But it does.

Keep us posted with your first hand observations and opinions. They are valued.

It is not Khan's faith that the tin hat brigade are concerned about but they are paranoid he will put Islamic matters above other ethnicities and religions, etc. He has had people waving Islamic State flags in various meetings where he has spoken in the past. I guess the Islamic extremists see his election as a step towards Islamisation of London, but that won't happen. Like I said, I believe, (as do many others), that people will keep a very close eye on him.

Hopefully he can ride out the unfair criticisms, keep his cool and get on with the difficult job of turning London round to the city it needs to be because BoJo (Boris Johnson - our previous Conservative party Mayor), made a pig's ear of running London. BoJo is a likable character but useless. We had eight years of BoJo and are ready for someone to kick start London to become what it should be, not the mess it is currently in.
