Why is Sadiq Khan giving Americans his views on the US election?

‘It’s important for those of us who are foreigners to stay out of the US elections.’ So said the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, with due propriety during his visit to America last week. Unfortunately he then added: ‘I hope that the best candidate wins and I hope she does win with a stomping majority.’

Given the febrile state of US politics, I’m sure that this cringe-worthy endorsement is precisely the sort of intervention that Clinton needs in order to get her faltering campaign back on track. And perhaps the lord mayor of, say, Wandsworth could polish his chain of office and head to Paris to advise the French on how to cast their votes in next year’s presidential campaign? It would do about as much good and a lot less harm.

    The more he speaks the better for Trump. Why not add Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, to the list of Clinton supporters too?

      Trump will not forget. What an idiot this Khan is. Typical little supremacist.

      The divine intervention of I-slam where have we witness this beneficence before ?

    I would like for the few true Brits left to leave before they are killed. The country is totally in the shitter.

  • Dana Garcia

    Liberal globalism and the planetary caliphate are a great fit, so it’s not a surprise that Sadiq would support the Democrat candidate.

    Hillary needs his campaigning for her like she needs another fainting spell.

    how is it the spectator be unaware of their own system of mayors and lord mayors? For that matter why does London need a mayor anyway?

    Oh yeah… This goatfuker’s opinion is important to me… Uh, actually not.

  • Sunshine

    Could the fact he met with the Clinton Foundation have anything to do with it?

  • Editor

    The muslims are experts at turning nice, safe places into absolute shit holes. He’s just showing Americans the way to make sure it happens in the US as well.

  • ghost of benghazi

    Trump already called it. Khan is not that smart.

    The Brits gave the little dog too much attention. Now he thinks he’s a real boy.
