    Sadiq’s Queen-Heckling Statue Guru Sacked for Antisemitism



    One of Sadiq’s anti-racist statue commissioners has today been sacked by the Mayor for racism, after an investigation into his writings by Jewish News. One of the posts from Toyin Agbetu claimed there was an “immoral hierarchy of suffering” which had seen victims of the Holocaust “served well by Nazi hunters” compared to African victims of the slave trade. For readers with a keen memory for names, Agbetu is the charming advisor Guido unearthed video of shouting at the Queen and threatening to punch security…

    Agbetu also defended an academic who urged his students to read a book called “The Secret Relationship Between Black and Jews” – in which it is claimed Jews played a leading role in the Atlantic slave trade – as a “first class historian”. A spokesperson for Sadiq told Jewish News that Khan has a:

    “zero-tolerance policy towards racism and prejudice in any form, and all allegations of this nature are taken extremely seriously.”

    “Toyin Agbetu has today resigned from the Commission for Diversity in the Public Realm and the Mayor believes this is the right course of action,”

    Agbetu’s Twitter continues to claim he is merely in favour of “radical education for an inclusive, equitable world”…

    Johnson just thanked 'wealth-creators' for their part in his triumph over Covid.

    For ****'s sake.

    While I’m almost certain Ellers’ post was a joke, the number of people who would say he’s done a heroic, brilliant job throughout is tragically high. They all despise Meghan Markle too, coincidentally.

    Yes it was. However, Boris is not responsible for 100K deaths. Agree they have made mistakes but tit was a disease that killed people. The sensible folk in society understand this. It's just a few anti - 'this and that' anarchists who come out with this utter crap. Next month they will be worrying about changing street names as it offends someone somewhere.

    The problem is when you refuse to acknowledge the drivers of our huge death toll and economic decline beyond writing them off as simple mistakes anyone could have made.

    Most of Europe is in a similar position. Our economy got hit bad but that maybe down to many factors. Mistakes were made and we need to learn going forward.
    However
    The government sorted out the vaccine roll out and we lead the way in Europe. Hopefully we can bring this thing to an end in the near future and get on with our lives.

    Probably worth thinking about this before the next time you cry about random lefties airbrushing history.

    Not airbrushing anything. Just understand that the World was hit by a disease and sadly people died. Every country the World claimed they could have done better but hindsight is a wonderful thing.

    The government made mistakes early on and this must be investigated in an enquiry. However any claim that the government is responsible for all the deaths is brainless. There were a number of reasons not least we are one of the most obese societies in the world. Perhaps we'll all eat a bit less now and stay fitter

    Totally agree. There are a few who keep saying the government is responsible for 100K deaths. Firstly that is bollox and secondly it's only coming from the same anti government voices.
    Meanwhile on planet reality there are many reasons why so many have died not to mention that I now know of 3 people who sadly died and all broke lockdown rules. Stupidly they thought meeting up with friends for a few drinks was allowed? One of which was a top fella and will be sadly missed.
