Sadiq Khan Booed At Jeremy Corbyn Rally Of Thousands In London

London’s Labour mayor Sadiq Khan was loudly booed at a rally for thousands of Jeremy Corbyn supporters on Sunday evening.

On Sunday, Khan dramatically intervened in the Labour leadership race and urged party members to vote for Corbyn’s challenger Owen Smith.

Corbyn told the crowd at the almost packed 4,000 capacity Ruach City Church in Kilburn, north London, he wanted to break the “magic circle of decision-making” that ran Westminster.

Speaking before the Labour leader, Claudia Webbe, a member of the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC), said accusations Corbyn could not win a general election were wrong. “Despite what Sadiq Khan says. We won London under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership,” she said.

The mention of Khan’s name, who won the London mayor’s race in May by beating Conservative candidate Zac Goldsmith by 1,310,143 votes to 994,614, was greeted with loud booing.
