My beautiful, diverse, vibrant city has elected a Muslim man Labour’s Sadiq Khan to be our next Mayor. He got 1.3million votes 57% after second preferences were counted and he defeated one of the most offensive campaigns we’ve seen since the 1980's when Simon Hughes ran against Peter Tatchell using the slogan “a straight choice” (incidentally Simon Hughes came out as Bisexual in around 2010).
Anyway. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSS. I am so so fucking happy. My party won, my candidate won and my city won, no more Tories for us!!!
