Sadiq Khan: consummate politico

David Hill reports in the Guardian, ‘Sadiq Khan’s speech to the Labour conference was carefully crafted to win audience applause but also, and most of all, to make point after point about the need to win elections and wield power. He congratulated Jeremy Corbyn on winning the most recent election he has run in, the pushover that has further strengthened his stranglehold on the Labour Party. After that, Khan didn’t mention Corbyn at all. He didn’t need to. The London mayor had already made clear what he thinks of Corbyn’s chances of emulating on a national scale his recent triumph in the fight for City Hall: “If Jeremy remains as leader, Labour is extremely unlikely to win the next general election.” click here
