Today’s face of the day Sadiq Khan is about to be elected as London’s first Muslim Mayor. He has defended Islamists, 9/11 terrorists, and is endorsed by anti-Semites.

Londoners go to the polls on Thursday to choose a replacement for the outgoing Mayor, Boris Johnson MP. Despite the fact the Labour Party is currently mired in an anti-Semitism scandal, if all things remain equal, expect the party’s candidate Sadiq Khan MP to be confirmed in the early hours of Friday morning.
Mr. Khan, 45, has had a successful career in the Labour Party…

The many concerns raised about Mr Khan include:

A letter to the Guardian in the wake of the 7/7 terrorist bombings on London, blaming terrorism on British Government policy;
His legal defence of Zacarias Moussaoui, a 9/11 terrorist who confessed to being a member of Al Qaeda;
His chapter in a book, entitled ‘Actions Against the Police’ which advises on how to bring charges against the police for “racism”. This is the same police force that Mr. Khan as London mayor would exercise authority over;
His defence of Islamist extremist Azzam Tamimi. When Dr. Tamimi told a crowd that the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammed would “cause the world to tremble” and predicted “Fire… throughout the world if they don’t stop”, Mr. Khan, who shared a platform with him, dismissed the threats as “flowery language”;
His platform-sharing with Suliman Gani, a south London imam who has urged female subservience to men, and called for the founding of an Islamic state.

Through this man New Zealand leads the world with another world record, but it is unlikely you know why.

Kiwi freediver William Trubridge has broken his own world record by descending to a depth of 122 metres (400ft) at the Vertical Blue event in the Bahamas.

It’s the 16th world record that Trubridge has broken in his career.

And the 35-year-old’s dive at Dean’s Blue Hole in the Bahamas just shades his former record, which stood at 121m.

Trubridge failed at the same record attempt in March, after suffering a bout of illness. Read more »

Former UK Official Who Invented Term ‘Islamophobia’: I Got Everything Wrong

He is now trying to make amends. Too little, too late.

Trevor Phillips is helping to present the study as a way of making up for having gotten “almost everything wrong” during his tenure in government. While heading the commission he led the formation of an official report that created and popularized the term “Islamophobia” as a way of stigmatizing any criticism of Islam or of mass Muslim immigration. Now, he admits he was wrong about everything. Read more »

Prince Harry has laid a wreath during a dawn service at Wellington Arch to mark the start of Anzac Day commemorations in the UK.

Thousands of people waited in the dark before the start of proceedings, which marked 100 years since the day was first marked in London.

Anzac Day has been commemorated in the capital since the first anniversary of the Anzac landings at Gallipoli in 1916, when King George V attended a service at Westminster Abbey.
