For the first time in history a Muslim will lead one of the biggest, most vibrant, most important cities in the Western World. A moderate, gay and lesbian, human rights supporting progressive politician is now Mayor of London. And the sleazy race-baiters who tried to beat him in the ugliest way possible got thumped. Anti-Semitism, racism and Islamophobia are the same beast. Hatred of the alien. It’s all fear and bigotry. Makes me happy to be a Londoner today.
