Sadiq Khan

After Trump's decision not to visit the UK due to Obama's policy of moving the US embassy to a new location, some Donald Trump supporter and anti-Muslim group is not happy with the US President decision of not coming to the US, and have blamed the London Mayor Sadiq Khan for Trump's decision.


The mayor was scheduled to give a speech at the Fabian Society on Saturday when a man, Davey Russell and his followers move a homemade Gallow right to the front of the auditorium where Khan was to give his speech,with an inscription on the Gallow "TAKE BACK CONTROL."

Davey Russell said his group name is pendragons, but he was later identified as a member of the far-right organization, the English Defense League. 

The mayor was accused of berating Trump, while he cooperate with terrorists, and also placing himself above the law. He was escorted out of the premises of the auditorium, while he keeps screaming for a refund because he had bought a ticket to the venue too.


After peace was returned to the auditorium, Sadiq Khan said "It's a pleasure to be here, even though we were distracted by the actions of what some would call very stable geniuses." The audience at the auditorium laughed at the joke.

Donald Trump refuses to go to the United Kingdom because of he said that the previous Obama administration made a bad deal to have the new country's embassy in a bad place, but insider sources have said he was not looking to go to the UK after he feared massive protests in the UK

London Mayor, Sadiq Khan has now responded to Donald Trump tweet that he won't be coming to the UK. The London mayor said that he"got the message" of the London people.

Mr Trump has cited the moving of the US embassy from Mayfair to Vauxhall as the reason for not going to the UK, and had instead sent the Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson to instead go on his behalf. 


Sadiq Khan said that the Trump's visit would have hampered the peace in London, because of his divisive views which does not represent the view of London, or the UK. Khan in a statement said;

It appears that President Trump got the message from the many Londoners who love and admire America and Americans but find his policies and actions the polar opposite of our city’s values of inclusion, diversity and tolerance.

His visit next month would without doubt have been met by mass peaceful protests. This just reinforces what a mistake it was for Theresa May to rush and extend an invitation of a state visit in the first place. Let’s hope that Donald Trump also revisits the pursuit of his divisive agenda.

Mr Khan and Labour party leader has hinted of protests from their people if Trump makes it to the UK, and when Trump sees that he would not be welcomed to the UK, he bow out of the visit.


A fridge explosion around 1am has caused the death of dozen of people living in 27-storey west London tower block in just 15 minutes. The explosion ripped through the building quickly that people were forced to throw themselves and their children from the window for the fear of burning to death.


According to the occupants of the building who were lucky to escape, the building has no fire alarm, the sprinklers failed and the only staircase that could serve as escape route was blocked.

A baby was thrown out of the building 10th floor and was picked up by a member of the public, and the baby only had only broken bone and bruises.


Commissioner of the London Fire Brigade, Dany Cotton said that there have been a number of fatalities, while the London Ambulance services said that more than 50 people are in hospital receiving treatment, and many more are currently being treated for smoke inhalation and minor burns.

A lot of residents who escaped the building can be seen crying as a large number of people are currently unaccounted for, and some are using social media to find their loved ones.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan is asking why the residents of Grenfell were asked to stay put in the building during the fire incident, after many residents warned that many people might die. He has also said that the incident begs for many questions such as the safety of the tower blocks in the capital.

According to a survivor that broke down on live TV, his neighbour had told him that his fridge exploded, and fire swamped the building. 

While the fire was raging, people could be seen with torchlights to call for help, and others could be seen tying bedding their bedsheet together to use as a rope to get away from the building.


The fire was reported to have spread from the second floor of the building to the top floor in less than 15minutes, and survivors said they were awoken because of loud screaming and also said they there was a strong smell of plastic burning that woke them up.

According to Local resident Tamara, who spoke with BBC new, she said;

Around 12.30/1am my mum called me and said there was a fire outside. By the time I got there the whole right side of the building was on fire, the whole thing was engulfed in flames.

We could hear people screaming 'Help me' so me and my brother, with some other people who live in the area, ran over to the estate to where you could still get underneath it and there were people just throwing their kids out saying 'Save my children.

The fire crew, ambulance and police couldn't do anything, they couldn't get in, and they were just telling them to stay where they are, and we'll come and get you. But things quickly escalated beyond measure and they couldn't go back in and get them.

Within another 15 minutes the whole thing was up in flames and there were still people at their windows shouting 'Help me'. You could see the fire going into their houses and engulfing the last room that they were in.
