Pol­i­tics of Pride

LONDON Mayor Sadiq Khan (above) tweets about a stabbing outside a gay bar in the capital: ‘The horrific hate crime in Clapham is being robustly investigated by the police. It’s also a tragic reminder of why we need Pride.’

Er, no, Mr Khan: it’s a tragic reminder of why we — actually, no, you — need to do something about the horrendous levels of knife crime.

Gay, straight, trans or non-trans, old, young: all Londoners deserve to go about their business without fear of being attacked. How about, instead of politicising such a heinous crime for your own virtue-signalling purposes, you actually do something about it?
