Sadiq KhanYasmin Alibhai-Brown writes in the Guardian, ‘A Khan victory would also demolish the extremists’ anti-western narrative. If a Muslim can be elected by millions of voters of all backgrounds to take charge of the world’s greatest city, how would the jihadis – how could they – carry on believing and arguing that we Muslims have no future in Europe, or that westerners hate us? This victory could do more to combat radicalisation than any number of government strategies – most of which are in any case unjust and counterproductive . . . Khan is smart, wise, a reformer, a man with good ideas. He is nonsectarian, nonpartisan and universalist. He has remained courteous and patient over months of Tory smears and rightwing assaults on his character. I last danced in the street when New Labour first took power from the Tories. I will dance again if Khan gets the prize and we get the mayor we surely deserve’.  click here.
