Sadiq Kahn accuses David Cameron of Donald Trump tactics

Sadiq Kahn accuses David Cameron of Donald Trump tactics
Others have described the campaign for the post of London’s mayor as ‘divisive’ and ‘unpleasant.’


New London mayor Sadiq Kahn, an observant Muslim, has accused Prime Minister David Cameron and the defeated rival in the mayoral vote Zac Goldsmith of trying to turn different ethnic communities against each other during the campaign to stop him from winning.

In an article in the Sunday’s Observer, Kahn said the pair had used tactics “straight out of the Donald Trump playbook.”

“They used fear and innuendo to try to turn different ethnic and religious groups against each other. Londoners deserved better and I hope it’s something the Conservative party will never try to repeat,” he said.

Senior Tories, including Mohammed Amin, chair of the Conservative Muslim Forum, also criticized their own party’s campaign as divisive and deeply unpleasant, according to a report in the Guardian.

As Khan, 45-year-old, U.K.-born son of Pakistani immigrants, was signed-in as mayor Saturday, he said he was determined to govern for all Londoners and for “every single community.”
