In 2013 when Boris Johnson was serving his final term as Mayor of #London, Sadiq Khan was the former mayor's biggest critic when it came to reforming London's police services. They would have inevitably caused damage to the Metropolitan Police and the outcome of Mr. Johnson's reforms were not certain. But Mayor Khan's remarks back then are typical of this politician's motives; he will say anything to gain power.

Since occupying the position of Mayor of London, he has gone back on so many campaign promises he made during the 2016 London Mayoral Election. He was a vehement proponent of freezing travel fares for the City's citizens and stole votes from his rival, Zac Goldsmith, and cost the latter victory.

Yet after succeeding Mr. Johnson, he immediately reneged on his central campaign pledge.

He does not represent the London taxi industry's best interests

The Mayor's recent Uber ban also demonstrate the depths he is willing to sink in order to deceive the electorate. He was once filmed saying he was "more of an Uber man" as opposed to a black cab passenger. But his Uber suspension shows that his instincts lie with regulating the free market. He does not represent the London taxi industry's best interests.

Mayor Khan's past has come back to haunt him in light of his recent proposals to close numerous police stations in Lambeth. He was opposed to Boris's measures in 2013 and now he is reforming the Metropolitan Police to the extent that community policing is being sacrificed to pay for his centralisation of power.

No one questions these types of proposals when a Labour politician is enacting them

It will not benefit Lambeth's residents to have one police station instead of ten. If this was a Conservative mayor proposing these cuts, the #Labour-run Lambeth Council would be relentlessly lobbying the Mayor's Office. They have shown little energy in protesting against Mayor Khan's policy. No one questions these types of proposals when a Labour politician is enacting them, as opposed to Tory politicians, who would be crucified by the press.

Sadiq Khan has forgotten his past comments and sacrificed his principles to gain power. He is part of the political class that is eroding people's trust in politics. He may have forgotten what he said in the past, but it is vital London citizens do not in the 2020 mayoral elections. #Labour Party
