Skip to comments.'Disgusting waste of money': Sadiq Khan slammed for New Year's Eve light show featuring BLM symbol and EU tribute

LondonAssembly members have blasted Sadiq Khan's £1.5million BBC-backed 'woke' pro-EU, NHS and BLM firework and drone display over the Thames.
Viewers were quick to criticise the taxpayer-funded New Year's Eve event, claiming it was 'ruined by politics' after Thames bridges were turned blue and yellow in a tribute to the EU as the UK finally left the bloc.
The display - which the London Mayor cooked up in secret with Scotland Yard to avoid crowds gathering in Greenwich - also saw 300 drones make the shape of a BLM fist and a turtle with Africa on its shell during a climate change lecture by Sir David Attenborough.
Politicians have now piled in on the show - with Conservative London Assembly member Tony Devenish slamming it as a 'disgusting waste of money'.
MailOnline today revealed that City Hall had a £1.5million budget with Mr Khan having the 'final sign off on the content of the display'.
Mr Devenish wrote: 'Disgusting waste of money Sadiq Khan. More of a sick joke by the week.'
Former UKIP leader Henry Bolton added: 'Stop politicising New Year’s Eve Mr Khan. It’s for everyone.'
Brexit Alliance Assembly member Peter Whittle said: 'So, an organisation that wants to defund the police, dismantle the family, sweep away capitalism and deconstruct British history gets celebrated in the middle of what should be a harmless New Year ritual.
'Predictably disgraceful from this Mayor.'
His criticism was echoed by fellow Assembly member and independent mayoral candidate David Kurten, who wrote: 'It is deplorable that London's New Year fireworks display contains a Marxist/BLM fist. If you want to celebrate British culture and not destructive ideologies, vote me for London Mayor on May 6.'

And they still vote for him.

1 Jan: Breitbart: Bojo Tweets Praise for the Great Reset. Strap in Everyone, 2021 is Going to be a Wild Ride
by James Delingpole
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has dashed hopes that 2021 will be any better than 2020 by tweeting his support of the Great Reset:
Tweet: Boris Johnson 14h ago
Proud that the UK is taking over the 2021 Presidency of the G7 today. Hosting both the G7 Summit and @COP26 (CLIMATE CONFERENCE) will make this a hugely important year for Global Britain and I look forward to welcoming our friends and allies as we beat COVID and ***build back better*** from the pandemic.
‘Build back better’ is, as Johnson is perfectly well aware, the slogan of the World Economic Forum’s deeply sinister Fourth Industrial Revolution — aka ‘the Great Reset‘ – whose aims include the deliberate crashing of the world economy, the crushing and destruction of small businesses, and the creation of a new cash-free society in which no one (save the technocratic elite) owns private property.
Unfortunately for Johnson, people have started wising up to what Build Back Better actually means.
Here are some of the comments which greeted his New Year message...ETC
Johnson has had a similarly unenthusiastic response to a jaunty piece in his old paper the Daily Telegraph in which he claims that this year is going to be one of ‘change and hope’ [hmm. Sounds vaguely familiar] and declares that the UK will lead ‘the world in making green energy and tackling climate change.’
Here is how the readers responded...ETC
Then his fellow Muslims shouldn’t have made fortunes kidnapping Africans to sell as slaves.
I’m shocked he’s actually wearing the Poppy pin.
And he will probably get re-elected in May.
What does that represent
Remembrance for WWI.
Maybe they didn’t really vote for him. I’m sure he has his own voter fraud operation.
Johnson and Khan both need to be locked up.
