Wiki info

The YouGov poll had revealed that 31% of Londoners stated that they would not be "comfortable" with a Muslim mayor. Aware that many voters were suspicious regarding the loyalties of British Muslims to the British state, Khan emphasised his commitment to liberal social values. As part of this, he declared his opposition to homophobia, and said that he would have "zero tolerance for anti-Semitism". He openly condemned Islamic extremism and called on the Muslim community to take a leading role in combating it, although at the same time acknowledged the Islamophobia that many British Muslims faced. He also distanced himself from Corbyn,[100] rebuking Labour's socialist leader for his links to armed anti-Israel groups,[101] and criticising him for not singing the national anthem at an event commemorating the Battle of Britain. [102] Concerned that Corbyn's socialist platform was alienating many of London's businesses, Khan declared that he would be "the most pro-business mayor ever",[103] and met with groups like the Federation of Small Businesses and City of London Corporation. [104] He also ensured that his campaign was run entirely separate from Corbyn. [105]
