Mayor of London Sadiq Khan found himself in hot-water from residents and politicians over the weekend, with critics slamming the left-leaning leader over his “pathetic” response to a stunning surge in violent crime across the United Kingdom’s capital.
According to Fox News, former Mayor of London and ex-Foreign Minister Boris Johnson penned a scathing assessment of Khan’s policies in the Daily Telegraph, calling Khan a “twinkle-toed mover on the movie premiere red carpet” who is largely ignoring the escalating crisis.
“Sadiq Khan may be a twinkle-toed mover on the movie premiere red carpet, but his pirouettes on the subject of knife crime are a positive wonder. He blames funding (when he was left with a large war chest by me); he blames the Tory Government; he blames society. He blames everyone but himself, when it is his paramount duty to keep Londoners safe,” Johnson wrote. “It is a pathetic performance.”
Johnson’s comments echo those of President Trump who slammed Khan during a recent interview with the Sun newspaper, saying “You have a mayor who has done a terrible job in London. He has done a terrible job.”
