London’s mayor, Sadiq Khan, is allowing the blasphemous blimp depicting a baby Trump to fly across London when Trump meets for a summit with Theresa May and The Queen. Khan has been blatheringly belligerent in his view of Trump since Trump proposed a temporary ban on all Middle East Immigration in 2015. Despite Trump congratulating Khan on his win as mayor, Khan has upheld his contempt, and the feud continues.
So what has Khan accomplished during his tenancy as Mayor of London?
Stabbings are at an all time high, the murder rate is up 40% rivaling New York City, which is actually dropping, there is a spike in gun crimes, he has cut the number of police officers on the beat, he has closed youth centers, and eliminated the two strikes law. And like Obama’s tenure, London has seen a tremendous rise in ‘hate crimes’.
Khan is anti BREXIT and decided to use government money to create a report that supports his conclusion: A no-deal BREXIT would leave the economy diminished and the people poorer. That is the conclusion Khan asked for and the conclusion the report defined. Apparently, the report makes future predictions that by 2030, Britain’s national income will be 3% less… if there is no transition agreement and no trade deal.
Basically, the report is based on a worst case scenario assuming that nothing changes, that the government caves to its inability to do anything whatsoever, and to a stagnant population with closing finance institutions. Dire.
But is it reality?
Racism is on the rise in London during Khan’s tenure too. At least that is what the media claim. But is it true? Or is it the same stoking we saw too often under the Obama administration to invite a belief until the belief was believed as truth? Initiating chaos and having the government help promote, incite and provoke?
The Guardian is even taking the racism agenda a step beyond rationale claiming that BREXIT caused racism. Of course there are other culprits in the cause of racism – capitalism and the far right.
But it isn’t just London that is currently a chaotic mess, the entire UK Parliament has come unhinged with eruptions resembling a junior high playground of bully fighting, fists and unfiltered tongues included. The notion of the English Gentleman is most definitely a novelty of many years past. And yet these same brewhards and blowhards would hypocritically paint President Trump in an unglamorous fashion all the while failing miserably to account for his accomplishments in this past year and a half.
What has Theresa May accomplished? Boris Johnson? Anyone within the UK Parliament? A list does not even exist.
What the UK has managed is the creation of a strange lot of laws:
1) Muslims may pray on the streets individually or enmasse. However, a man who read aloud from the Bible was arrested for inciting hate speech.
2) MI6 helped create the Trump Dossier.
3) The Skripal case against Russia was never proven, nor was the evidence released despite the accusation and the ultimate prosecution being finalized.
4) The UK has banned entry, and/or jailed, activists who hold to an anti-Muslim opinion because their speech might cause Muslim’s to become violent. This is akin to jailing the victim of a crime.
If in fact either Khan or May had a slew of amazing accomplishments behind them as Mayor and PM, their derisive attitude toward Trump might have some basis. But given that Trump has infinite accomplishments to their none makes the entire snub rattily snotty.
