    London Mayor Sadiq Khan was challenged on live TV as he claimed there is “no risk” of catching the deadly coronavirus from joining the millions who ride the city’s packed trains and buses. “It’s very important that we don’t spread panic or alarm based on misinformation,” Khan said on “Good Morning Britain” Tuesday when asked about the assumed “obvious risk factor” of public transport. “There is no risk in using the Tube or buses or other forms of public transport,” he said, noting there are 5 million journeys each day on the underground system along with 6 million on buses....

    LONDON — The mayor of London accused the government on Monday of failing to give judges the tools they need to keep people who pose terrorist threats in prison, a day after a man who had recently been released went on a stabbing rampage in South London. The attacker, who wounded three people on Sunday before being shot and killed by the police, was identified by the police as Sudesh Amman, a 20-year-old from London who was jailed in 2018 for terrorism-related offenses. He was sentenced to more than three years in prison, but his early release came automatically, in...

    Sadiq Khan’s former policing adviser yesterday defected to the Liberal Democrats, saying his children were “not safe” on London’s streets because of knife crime. In a shock switch, Leroy Logan, a former police superintendent, said that he was quitting the Labour Party over the London Mayor’s record. He will now become policing adviser to the Lib Dem mayoral candidate Siobhán Benita, who has unveiled a five-point plan to tackle knife crime. Mr. Logan had been planning to stand as a Labour member of the London Assembly. He was an adviser to Mr. Khan during his 2016 mayoral campaign and drafted...

    London mayor Sadiq Khan rips Trump for managing Hurricane Dorian emergency response while 'out on the golf course' The mayor of London renewed his public feud with President Trump over the weekend by mocking the president for canceling a trip to Poland to commemorate the start of World War II only to deal with emergency response to Hurricane Dorian from the golf course.

    A wave of extremist far-right movements with chilling echoes of the Nazis is being “fueled” by Donald Trump, writes Sadiq Khan on 80th anniversary of World War II. The rise of far-right movements and leaders — fueled by President Donald Trump, the “global poster boy for white nationalism” — threatens to wipe out the lessons of World War II, London Mayor Sadiq Khan charged in a scathing essay Saturday. “An entire generation of brave men and women around the globe sacrificed everything to defeat the singular evil of Nazism and fascism,” Khan wrote in The Observer to mark the 80th...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — With Iranian military threats in mind, the United States is sending American forces, including fighter aircraft, air defense missiles and likely more than 500 troops, to a Saudi air base that became a hub of American air power in the Middle East in the 1990s but was abandoned by Washington after it toppled Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein in 2003. The Saudi Foreign Ministry announced the basing agreement Friday without mentioning details.

    U.S. President Donald J. Trump backed the United Kingdom after Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps seized a British-flagged tanker in the Strait of Hormuz, saying the Islamic Republic is in “big trouble”. “Iran is showing their true colours,” President Trump told reporters outside the White House, adding: “Iran is in big trouble.”The President’s relationship with British government ministers and prominent opposition politicians, such as hard-left Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and London mayor Sadiq Khan, has often been strained, as they have rushed to commentate negatively on his administration in hopes of winning the approval of left-liberal activists and media commentators.Nevertheless, the American leader’s attitude to his...

    London mayor Sadiq Khan has reignited his long-running feud with U.S. President Donald Trump, branding the American leader “the poster boy for a global far-right movement” along with Hungary’s Viktor Orbán, Italy’s Matteo Salvini, France Marine Le Pen, and Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage. Speaking on President Trump’s recent state visit to the United Kingdom at a Mayor’s Question Time session at the London Assembly, the Labour politician accused the American leader, Prime Minister Orbán, Deputy Prime Minister Salvini, Ms Le Pen, and Mr Farage of “using the same methods from the old far-right playbook: picking on minority communities and...

    In the main, the American media do not think highly of our current president. This matters. Whether they admit it or not, their personal views shape their reportage. They regard him as a pretender to the throne, an accidental occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue who has done more to discredit his office than most any of his predecessors. In their eyes, he's a bombastic boor and a bumbler whose reckless disregard for the dignity of his office has cheapened the nation in the eyes of the world. Not everyone holds that opinion. A goodly number of his supporters probably don't...

    ROME — When Stephen K. Bannon was still heading Breitbart News, he went to the Vatican to cover the canonization of John Paul II and make some friends. High on his list of people to meet was an archconservative American cardinal, Raymond Burke, who had openly clashed with Pope Francis.In one of the cardinal’s antechambers, amid religious statues and book-lined walls, Cardinal Burke and Mr. Bannon — who is now President Trump’s anti-establishment eminence — bonded over their shared worldview. They saw Islam as threatening to overrun a prostrate West weakened by the erosion of traditional Christian values, and viewed...

    President Trump on Tuesday, in a press conference with outgoing U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, ripped into his British left-wing critics, saying that the anti-Trump politicians are a "negative force" -- and confirmed that he had snubbed the leader of the opposition Labour Party when he sought a sit-down. "I don't know Jeremy Corbyn, never met him, never spoke to him, he wanted to meet today or tomorrow and I decided I would not do that," Trump told reporters at a press conference. Corbyn, the leader of the opposition Labour Party and a veteran left-wing activist, was attending an anti-Trump...

    President Trump on Sunday called London Mayor Sadiq Khan the “twin” of New York City’s liberal Mayor Bill deBlasio “except shorter.” Trump made the comments as he was leaving for the United Kingdom, which will be the first stop of a five-day trip to Europe. There is no love lost between Trump and Khan. The London mayor recently said Trump was not in the “same class” as his predecessors. Prior to Trump’s visit, Khan wrote a column titled, “It’s un-British to roll out the red carpet for Donald Trump.”
