Sadiq Khan leads London race, could be 1st Muslim mayor

Sadiq Khan leads London race, could be 1st Muslim mayor
By ASSOCIATED PRESS

PUBLISHED: 10:17 EST, 6 May 2016 | UPDATED: 10:17 EST, 6 May 2016


LONDON (AP) — Labour Party politician Sadiq Khan, the son of a bus driver from Pakistan, led London's mayoral race Friday, opening a lead over Conservative rival Zac Goldsmith that left him poised to be the city's first Muslim mayor.

Labour was trounced in Scotland but lost fewer seats than many expected elsewhere in local and regional elections that underscored Britain's political divisions.

Khan had a substantial lead with a majority of first-preference votes counted in the London election. A final result is due Friday evening, once voters' second preferences have been factored in.

How Zac Goldsmith lost London for the Conservatives: what does it mean, and who's to blame?

It is easy to forget how the London mayoral race looked when it began last autumn. When Sadiq Khan was selected as the Labour candidate instead of Dame Tessa Jowell, many commentators - and quite a few Tories - assumed that the election was in the ...

Re: London Mayor’s Race Exposes Ugly Faultlines in British Politics

Post  Sirop14 on Sat May 07, 2016 12:31 am

Almost forgot we shared that link to this page - before we end this Historic day - would like to take the opportunity to address the Incoming Mayor of London and His Office.

The larger/more important concentration of our community is in Hounslow/Slough Council - how they came to settle there and those who pioneered our early days - the very important Asian communities we had to work and network with.

We have address our East Africa Sechelles Seychelles Asian important past links, working and those from the former East African Asian Communities in not just Hounslow - across London.

As a Community in East Africa, the legacy we left and contributions - a such our ancestral values, just as every nations have such important Values.

From 1978/9 when our first exile/refugee families decided to settle close to Heathrow Airport. Their motives. We were offered a blunt offer either we have our Main Office in London or Hounslow, then Dame Shirley Porter as Mayoress of London and her support for our community and the Center we had decided to open the negotiation which had been started/Initiated by Mr Gerard Hoareau,  the leader of SNM/MPR - the very interesting history of this project and the City of London. Talking of the Panama papers. In the end for Funding/Grant support we moved from Calpham Junction, the police Station, Old library/ Wondsworth Forum fostering to Hounslow. The many Asians NGO personalities who shared their knowledge and experiences with us knowing we came form the Indian Ocean, then Cold War and Geopolitics.
Among our working connection in Hounslow,  the Pakistan communities and the why - associated/linked with our ancestral European Arcadian workings. The many instance in spite of our small size the thematic and topics we became engaged in and the dynamic/disciples we applied to work and drive them.

Today's media possibility in vastly different to 1980 - when we impute in such complex topics were muzzled, threaten and bullied to shut up, not to mention them in writing,  in public because of the repercussion of the Illuminati/Masonic Establishments. Those who took the credits for our impute and hard work. Inevitable when using such discipline and when overly abused, mismanaged the very negative fallout to be polite. This affecting not just the Asian communities in Hounslow or London but their respective Home  Land and Nation and their Communities across the world.

Because of this development - we found it necessary to open special communication with the UN and then Europe relevant institutions explaining what was going on from our point of view. Those who are familiar with the workings of UN and EU what this requires. Again the pattern. We almost acquired a Center for the Community in Hounslow. BY then our communities had acquired sufficient experiences and spread their residences across other Borough.

At this stage ask and politely remind the greater Asians communities in Britain to remember the state of British economy/politic, their plight, the debacle of the economic situation then ex East Africa Asians and establish #Asian communities - then Issues of Professor Von Hayak and Prof Micheal Hofmann on the streets of London or Hounslow it meant nothing - we had been importantly involved. Beside other associated experience. The decision for our exile/refugee community to put into place that historic SIROP program initially $500/800 millions for a small nation what this meant and the complexities we had structured its implementation. ( Today some 27 years on that program is 50% implemented and a gross worth of some $4 billion) We used our facilities based at the Weighbridge Building/Headed by Mr Leslie Forsyth SNP member. We used our Kilburn- Brent facilities by then Mr Ken Livingstone, the very extended Irish Communities,  be they in Hounslow or Brent. Given then Seychelles Cold War diplomatic, economic and other connection - equally build sophisticated connections in London those underground communities of then East Europe/COMECON who supported changes. Among other important resources the NGO of Ealing, Refugee Forum and several others. NCVO and LVSC. The important Polish Resources in Chiswick and Community/Borough Resources. Those who supported us and were told bluntly when that program would be accepted and implemented the Region of Indian Ocean, Africa and Gulf Region would forever change. Then Pakistan government, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka - the many Tamil debacles and politic we got embroiled in. By then we were directly engage with the USA, USSR/Later Russia Commonwealth, EU and a number of important world players. Again what this requires and take. Meanwhile the British media what they reported and wrote. We came to the conclusion the Benchmark which controlled information and knowledge need to be changed if that Program was to be successful - we undertook negotiation with President F Mitterrand to deploy the then Minitel system for this Program and developing a global connectivity to use and share information - He was reluctant. We had already become committed in the CERN Project again the application of our ancestral working when things do not function or work and the outcome - the creation of the WWW. The impact on regional nations,  be they Gulf Region, Africa, India , Pakistan or Bangladesh. Those who knew- aware our Community involvement. Beside several important associated projects - to stress how the Asian communities saw and benefited and those with the economic and financial resources capitalized. From then on the wealth of the Asian communities across London. What about setting up the National Lottery project and politic - the utter lie we had started that Project in Kilburn and how PM John Major took it on-board, again the manner thing get/are done in this country, beside the sudden economic growth and development possibility in their respective countries.

In short it was that historic program which opened the doors for many very important economic, social and democratic possibilities for Indian, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Gulf region and Africa.

Now we come to the reason for this thread - those form NCVO and LVCS, we had started that program from basic and by then some 5 years 1991, the return of Multiparty in Seychelles and many regional and world changes. Those leadership of NCVO and LVSC who used many aspect of that program to build and develop new capacity for their workings, New premises and Resources as such London workings and the Office of the Mayor of London and the City involved.

7/5/2016,  We have edited this contribution. The need to say we were very concern and disappointed when we learnt Lady Thatcher would be cremated. The functionality after death. The raw and unwritten thematic, topics linked with the closure of GLC by the Conservatives. How the NGO, the Grass Roots, the Volunteer sector suffered, the exile/refugee and the Homeless/Poverty, the Charity workings - the Conservative view, politic and policies. We our,  Community and ancestral/ heritage were involved those who choose to forget and what the media have written as history or fact. We took and formed part of those entities who did  not give up and joined the fight for the replacement of an alternative body. To achieve this we brought in the French Model of Mayoral workings, the many, many thematic, topics and fallout positive and negative - the Mayor Chirac and others. The French Community in London, Institutions. The European Communities dimension to force and compel the Conservative to adopt and create this Office.  The city of London Corporate dimensions. The formulation of the new Office - where it would be House, as is the norm with British working linking/associated thematic, politic in Europe, the USA and rest of the world  influencing and driving them and responsibilities/parameters - very important,  the battle to elect its very first office bearer/Mayor and how we waded in and the discipline and mechanism we used. Yet again the so call main steam media what they wrote as history and those who took credit and the manner, approach things are done in this country - the Grass Root and communities and individuals who fight, slug it out and help to get things done and the Politician and Institution and their media who lie, work with utter dishonest benchmarks and take credit and con the world they did everything and managed everything.  We had trust getting involved in Project like Wikipedia this would encourage contributors  to share and write their perception of what it History and reality and Wikipedia or those who have been educated/program to listen to only certain voices and we have to many one sided so call history and truth of history. This also required the empowerment of Grass and Ethnic Community workings - the important role we played with that and through that SIROP program and other working corporate interests. We helped create the Today News paper, the Independent and the European News. Then Robert Maxwell. When a community or given entity gets embroiled in such major debacle these are not to be forgotten or just swept under the carpet - sadly the use and abuse of those infernal satanic/criminal  mechanism those who abuse it  to control the mind of younger generation, Grass Root, exile/refugee sector workings  and many other who would like to work with them - the utter corrupted practices and approach and the mega mess society, democracy have landed in as a result. What about the many past Labour , Liberal Politicians we worked these thematic with, many not there anymore and those who choose to forget and so doing disrespect their live and what they have fought for and represented gave to the world and this country. For this important reason we have many many individuals, they apply this  satanic/cjd and criminal mechanisms,  they harvest and steal information and the rage/rave, spin it is their knowledge and abilities - the super mess British Politic have landed, Europe and the rest of the world including Mr Donald Trump, the like of President J A Michel, Dr Ramgoolam, SAJ and those from Africa, the Arab world - the cacophony.  Those exile/refugee from our community who had wanted and wished that this mechanisms/practice,  get implanted in Seychelles after the meltdown of the Communist/dictatorial system practices/communication. ("Thank you Facebook for your existence and very great communication possibilities associated resources)


It is very normal when any entity or communities or parties undertake such exercise and involvement - the report, they develop management capacity to work and continue develop due capacity to work future thematic and in this case then Mr Ken Livingstone, Mr Boris Johnson and this current Mayoral election and outcome.

Seychelles is embroiled in the Somali Pirate debacle and the decision to build the Pirate Center there and for the past 7 years the multi Naval Task force operating there. Seychelles is embroiled in other very complex and complicated diplomatic and military thematic of the region - yet the British institution and media would have the world believe they are just a bunch of coconuts heads and happy people, silly heads - the objective and purpose of this thread it to share with the incoming Mayor our concern and share it wit the world and the respective authorities and institutions. Failing this - the eventual very negative collateral fall outs.

Edited 7/5/2016 - We come from a fairly conservative religious background - in spite of the significant contribution to purchase that Synagogue at Crawford place, the Advent Center and the many Muslim communities and person who visit that place  and we church-ed there and the many London churches started from their mainly,  the Spanish and Portuguese speaking - Polish SDA, Philippine, Ghana, Kenya, other East European and Russia/Ukraine took to attending the Russian speaking church in Tooting, Very important after praying and praying the pastor and church members gave me a Russian Bible which they signed for the Family in Seychelles. We packed our suitcase in 2009 shortly after the meltdown, the BRICS first meeting had not taken place and the topics in London, porridge, chocolates, woke and pans - present for the family at the Airport that suitcase never made it to Seychelles - we lived in borrowed cloth,  upon our return picked the suitcase form the Airport and has been unopened since. Part of the reason for going to Seychelles was to meet with President FA Rene and we attempted 13 times - what we saw/encountered the last effort at Maison du peuple. That was before we had started that SIROP online project. What must be said, the positive contributions that London Russian church was making imputing in Russia /Ukraine mega workings, economic, business and democracy and what ensued and what we have written - that Russian church they know a great deal about that SIROP program from the SDA prospective. We requested and asked them to pray for us  and the many many troubling thematic and issues - the situation with our place in Islington and them Conservative Coalition and Mayor Boris Johnson. Beside their help and prayer with our son A Level  and University entry debacles. There is also a Ghana SDA Church they drove me to the Russian Church the first time after Sabbath Lunch/Fellowship - much more important,  there is a very big SDA multi ethnic West Indian community Church down the Road it took 25 years to build and made headline and it is very impressive - situated not far form the White Eagle the Polish Center and their Church we have attended in Tooting.  The Two Mauritian Restaurants and those who travel all the way from Kent to purchase Mauritian goodies there. On this special Day 7/5/2016, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon,  in Seychelles  and the party at State House - the Presidential election and the Court case and the election of the Pakistani origin Mayor of London and the Seychelles Embassy and Consulate in London, beside Mauritius  if and when changes come would need radical change too.

We have been covering such thematic for the past 15 years.

On behalf of our greater Seychelles Communities workings in London, Britain and Europe convey our good wishes and success to the incoming Mayor of London.

How life and history is catching up with us - in the early days of the Lawrence incident shared some of the info with the public, the European Institution and the UN, yet the many Inquiries and their outcome and contents, British media workings - what had triggered that incident and again the thematic and topics, issues surrounding then 87a Victoria Rd Kilburn - Brent and this morning Ceremony for the Mayor - "He was introduced by Doreen Lawrence, the campaigner and mother of Stephen Lawrence, a British teenager who was murdered in a racist attack in South East London in 1993. She said never thought she would see the day that London would have a mayor from an ethnic minority background."
